The Peace Bell to be presented to San Marino had been made very nicely, and
on December 6th, 2020 the unveiling party was held by renting the kitchen car space
in front of the Sin-Marunouchi Building in Tokyo Marunouchi.
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.
