To support our coexistence with the local community and speed the process of recovery from the Kumamoto Earthquake of April 2016, Kumamoto PARCO has been conducting a restoration support project for Higo Ichinomiya Aso Shrine, which was severely damaged by the earthquake.

As a first round of support for Aso Shrine, we held a special exhibition of “Aso Shrine Tower Gate Model Replica” at Kumamoto PARCO. This gate is a symbol of Aso Shrine, and is a designated national treasure and one of Japan’s three famous tower gates.

In addition to displaying a photo panel of the Aso Shrine and a movie showing the restoration work, a popular artist from Kumamoto, Kenshi Matsunaga, also drew a work on the theme of the Aso Shrine.

We will continue to support Aso Shrine going forward.
