1 million JPY subsidy for the venue, 1.5 million JPY subsidy for the reception party
- Provision of traditional Japanese performing arts.
At the organizer’s request, we arranged a traditional ‘kagura’ performance at the ANA Crowne Plaza Hotel Hiroshima. The performance had to be eye-catching, so we chose the play “Oeyama” - it has the biggest cast of all kagura plays.

Comment from the Convention Bureau
This international convention made full use of the “Provision of Traditional Performing Arts” package from the bureau’s support options. We put on a colorful kagura spectacle that was representative of Hiroshima culture at the reception party.
We also consulted with the kagura troupe to pose for pictures.
