- Statement -

Togatta Hot-Spring is located at the foot of Zao's cauldron,

which opened before the Edo period.

While it is a tourist destination,

it is also a place where local residents live.
The town is characterized by the coexistence of both lifestyle and tourism.

Hot springs spring, therapeutic baths, and "Kokeshi" dolls made by

wood craftsmen are just a few examples of the town's history.
The town flourished as an inn town for people visiting Zao and as a pleasure quarter,

and the accompanying culture, industry, and business were born and continue to this day.
The culture, industry, and business that accompanied it were born,

and have continued to this day.

The people who live here today may in fact have been travelers

if they trace their roots back to the past.
By reconsidering such "travelers," the Expo will not divide people

into those within the region and those outside the region,

but will simply and purely focus on "what is happening there.
By rethinking such "travelers," we can share and empathize with both local people

and tourists who come to visit on a whim,

without dividing them into those in the region and those outside the region.
We will examine how communities in the countryside should be by realizing

that "culture is something that is created within the land"

and that "outside and inside have nothing to do with each other".
We will examine how communities in the countryside should be....

江戸時代以前に開湯した蔵王のお釜の麓にある「遠刈田温泉」。

観光地でありながらも、地域住民の生活の場でもある

生活と観光が同居する街が特徴でもあります。

温泉が湧き、湯治場が出来、木地職人によって「こけし」が
齎され、蔵王へお参りをする宿場街として、花街として隆盛し、

それに付随する文化や産業、商売が生まれ、現在に至ります。

いまここに土着している人たち、

実はルーツを辿ればそんな旅人だったのではないでしょうか?
エキスポでは、そんな「旅人」を再考することで、

地域内、地域外と分け隔てることなく、

ただ純粋に「そこで起きていること」を

地域の人も、ふらっと遊びに来た観光客も、

共に共有し、共感することで、

「文化は土地の中で作られていく物事」であり、

そこには「外も内も関係ない」事へ気付くことで、

田舎におけるコミュニティの在り方を考察していきます。
