Project Theme Song "Nihon no Sugata" Summary
Artist: SUNAHARA Yoshinori

The Agency for Cultural Affairs is hosting the "Japan Media Arts Distributed Museum" that will be deployed in 10 Japanese airports sequentially as part of a new project called the "Japanese cultural media arts dissemination initiative in airports and other institutions".

The artists and creators featured in this exhibition capture the cultural resources borne out of various local cultures through fresh perspectives in places like airports, which serve as gateways to these regions. By showcasing the works of media arts, we invite visitors to explore the true spirit of these cultures through their travels.

Japan Media Arts Distributed Museum Theme Song "Nihon no Sugata"
Artwork: "Nihon no Sugata"
Motif: The people, animals, nature, and technology of Japan and their history
"Nihon no Sugata" [the form/appearance of Japan] is a piece created as the theme song of the Japan Media Arts Distributed Museum, a series in which the featured artists and creators capture the cultural resources borne out of various local cultures through fresh perspectives in places like airports, which serve as gateways to these regions.

The composition's concept begins with Nihonbashi, considered the origin of modern Japanese culture, where the 'common folk culture' fostered by its townspeople still thrives, but culminates in an expression of Japan itself. It is imbued with the spirit of Japan's people, abundant nature, and profound history as well as gratitude toward these things and hope for the future. With each part of the process digital, from composition and recording to mixdown and mastering, this is truly the soundtrack to welcome visitors to Japan in the Reiwa era.
