Kansai Studies is a new research program at Kyoto Experiment. This year, led by Lake Biwako and the Lake Biwa Canal, we have continued our research in to all kinds of aspects related to water. Through this research, I’ve realized that water has a direct connection to life and culture, from ancient times to the present day. On the one hand, if you go for a walk on a sunny day in the city it may be rare to see any water, however that’s not to say that water doesn’t flow within the city. There must be signs of water, hidden water or water that has leaked out of somewhere with nowhere to go. I’d like to invite participants to search for this water together and discover the city from a different perspective. (Nagara Wada)
