This event has ended.

Chiba Sogen is a calligraphy artist and lives in Ishinomaki city of Miyagi prefecture. His birthplace and warehouse in Kesennuma were completely destroyed by the March 11th tsunami, and he lost around 100 masterworks including great works that were over 10m x 3m. When the earthquake happened, he was in Tokyo. He could confirm safety of his family in Miyagi. Days later he finally could come back his hometown by bus. He stood there and looked at the devastation caused by the tsunami and the earthquake. Some of his disciples of him were gone and some lost their families.

Chiba Sogen arises from the devastated land after the greatest earthquake on record. He will perform live calligraphy for all the people of the disaster area.
