Kiyoe Gallery Niseko Presents - Yoko Arano Personal Exhibition

2017-06-22

Kiyoe Gallery Niseko Presents - Yoko Arano Personal Exhibition

Honing her craft in an artistic career that has spanned over 60 years - including frequent trips to China and a myriad of exhibitions all over Japan - Master Calligrapher Yoko Arano has finally come to AYA Niseko.

Arano Opening 1 Of 1

To mark the opening of her fascinating Calligraphy Exhibition, the local legend treated visitors at AYA Niseko to a live calligraphy performance.

After the opening calligraphy, the venue moved to Kiyoe Gallery on the 2nd floor where gallery guests were treated to an audience with the Sensei herself, with delicious Japanese sweets served throughout by local Kutchan patisserie, Baigetsu.

The following week, guests and visitors were given the opportunity to learn the art of calligraphy from local legend Arano-sensei in a hands-on lesson. As a result of her enthusiastic and supportive teaching, every student left with a deeper understanding of the meaning behind the artform, and how to approach creating these emotive strokes.

The art work of Yoko Arano will be exhibited at Kiyoe Gallery Niseko (AYA Niseko 2F) until the 17th of July.

Summer in Niseko

While most of Japan swelters in the summer sun, Hokkaido is often seen as a welcome break from the southern heat and humidity - boasting pleasant, temperate weather, crisp cool breezes, and a stunning array of natural terrain and flora to experience and explore.

Hokkaido is full of national parks, mountain ranges and opportunities for outdoor sports and activities, which can range from scenic road-trips, fishing, hiking and climbing, to golf, whitewater rafting, and of course — cycling.

Toya

Inspiring surroundings

The Niseko Classic offers two challenging courses set within a series of incredible backdrops, with inspiring views of one of Hokkaido’s most beloved and recognisable sights, the inactive volcano, Mount Yōtei.

Taking place in the height of July, riders will have the chance to ride through eclectic terrain; including the beautiful Panorama Line, picturesque Rankoshi and Kyōwa areas, and even the coast of the Sea of Japan.

Spring Sakura in Niseko

2017-04-11

In May, japanese cherry blossom in Niseko will burst into pale and vivid pinks, marking the dramatic arrival of the 'Hanami' season.

Sakura

Images of sakura can be found in art, historical images, pop-culture, and more everyday places than you might think. Did you know the current 100 yen coin has a sakura flower on the back?

The cherry blossom, (along with the chrysanthemum) is one of Japan's national flowers, and is hugely popular for both its quiet beauty and its historical and philosophical meaning. In Japan, sakura are often seen as wistful metaphors for the "ephemeral nature of life" and the impermanence of things.

Most sakura will only bloom once a year, with the Japanese cherry tree spending the majority of its life looking like a flowerless one - until, after a long and difficult winter - the spring arrives. 
The heat and light reinvigorates the sakura, causing them to bloom all at once (saku - 咲く) in a symphony of colour and sunshine.

'Hanami' is the traditional Japanese practice of visiting blooming japanese cherry and ume trees for picnics and celebrations; a national passion which is so widely observed in Japan that when sakura season comes, even news and weather channels regularly update on blooming forecasts and reports across the country.

After a short time in bloom, the sakura rests, petals will begin to float silently to the ground, waiting to start the cycle anew.

Hokkaido, having the coolest weather in Japan, is usually the last place for sakura to bloom every year. The wave of colour will wash from South to North, finally reaching Niseko during April/May.

Most popular sakura viewing locations

Cherry blossoms at Goryokaku Park,

Repeatedly voted the greatest sakura viewing point in Hokkaido, the star shaped park and surrounding moat are lined by over 1500 individual sakura trees, and is truly a sight to behold, with visitors flocking from all over Hokkaido to visit the park.

Located in Hakodate, Goryokaku is accessible by train or by car, but is more suited to a day or multi-day trip due to the distance. (Roughly 3 hours by car, or 4 hours by train - perfect if your trip includes visiting southern Hokkaido.)

For somewhere a little closer to home, it's easy to find dazzling displays of cherry blossom during the hanami season. Many streets in the Hirafu Niseko area are lined with beautiful blooming cherry trees. There are also a number of popular local spots which are prepared year-in, year-out, such as Mr Mishima's lovingly cultivated and prepared sakura display.

In recent years popular displays in Kutchan include:

  • Mishima san's Turf Cherry Garden (Kutchan)
  • Marchen Street (Kutchan)

Niseko Village and Niseko town:

  • The Twin Cherry Trees (Niseko Town)
  • Soga Forest Park (Near Niseko Station)
  • Kaributo Shrine (Near Niseko Station)
