Nozawa Onsen Village, Japan (PRWEB) June 08, 2011
EastEdge Partners is proud to announce the opening of The Dojo, a new events space in Nozawa Onsen village. The Dojo is a multi-purpose facility including music, art, fitness and film events throughout the year.
The Dojo held its Grand Opening event on May 3, 2011. The grand opening included several classic film viewings and a charity concert for victims who suffered from the March 11 earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan.
The Dojo was exclusively a Japanese style dojo (training hall for Japanese martial arts), before transforming into a newly-renovated open arts space with vintage décor. Renovations have added a theater system, indoor screen and antique Japanese furniture to create an eclectic event space for various occasions both health and leisure related. It plans to house a wide variety of artists and services from various genres including acoustic, rakugo, drama, art exhibits and installations, dance, yoga, judo, kendo and films.
Currently The Dojo has plans to organize several seasonal film festivals to Nozawa Onsen, a regular local film party schedule and cozy concert venue bringing through a variety of unique groups from Tokyo and abroad to perform. It hopes to incorporate school groups to utilize it for educational purposes.
Plans also include artists who have locally inspired themes to hold galleries using The Dojo. The Nozawa Onsen Cinema Club has recently been organized and will utilize The Dojo with an ongoing schedule with classic, art, family and Japanese film parties.
The Dojo is located in Nozawa Onsen village which is in the heart of the mountains of the Nagano prefecture. The village has been receiving attention as a rich ski resort destination in the Japanese Northern Alps, but also attracts hikers and nature enthusiasts with its rich culture and history. The Dojo will accompany other event halls and museums including The Arena, Japan Ski Museum and Oborozukiyo no Yakata Art Gallery in Nozawa Onsen village to provide the community and guests with a broader range of cultural activities.
The Dojo is making a call for performing artists in the following genres: Japanese traditional, world, jazz, blues and all types of dance. The Dojo will offer an all-expense paid package to Nozawa Onsen to perform at The Dojo for selected applicants. Specialists and groups interested in holding health and healing related seminars or sessions should also apply.
