If you have been to Higashimurayama, did you learn anything about fine art or pop art during your visit? Please interpret the definition of art as broadly as you wish, but to get started, think about things like music, fashion, visual art, theater, cinema, architecture or literature, in any context: modern, historical, popular, or academic. Think about creative and expressive culture in Japan and what you learned about it!

If you have not visited Higashimurayama, think about an aspect of Japanese creative culture that you would like to explore or interact with in person if you were able to visit our sister city! And feel free to ask any of our committee members or former delegates about their experiences.
