Greetings on World Poster Exhibition of Ogaki Matsuri Festival
Bin Ogawa(Mayor of Ogaki City)
I sincerely would like to celebrate the grand opening of the World Poster Exhibition on Ogaki Matsuri Festival that commemorates the first anniversary of the registration as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage.
A number of impressive works filled with such a creativity drawn on the theme of “Ogaki Festival” are appearing on the Genuine Mino Paper that also has been registered by UNESCO. They are emerging vividly along with the light penetrating through the Genuine Paper.
I do hope this exhibition will serve as a big transmitter of the charm of Ogaki Festival toward the world. All of you are invited to fully enjoy the splendid collaboration by the internationally famous artists with the Japanese tradition and culture.
I would like to close my greetings by expressing my deepest thanks to everyone involved including the executive committee members who spent such a long time to organize this fantastic event.
