The Peace Bell to be presented to San Marino had been made very nicely, and
was shown on the sidewalk in front of Shin-Marunouchi Building,
by courtesy of Mitsubishi Estate, on December 6, 2020.
The show started with a special kabuki play “Heiwaninareya Inoruwakonokane”
(“Aspire to Peace with this Bell”), performed by Hashigo Nakamura, a kabuki actor.
Audiences were impressed by the splendid performence.
Nakamura was followed by Seiko Takase who talked about the Peace Bell enthusiastically,
a group Kohanjuku to play Japanese drums, and
a group to perform a traditional dance called Nishimonai-bon-odori
The performers and audiences together shared aspiration for peace and containment of coronavirus.
We paid attention to anti-coronavirus measures; keeping social distance and modest call
to passers-by. They seemed enjoying the show for a while.
