We have an organic attitude of sorts, but we do not go out of our way to be organic or alternative, rather, we do what suits us at the time

Every two years for the last 20 years, Mrs Asaba has been leading creative-living workshops and cultural exchange experiances
Her focus has been on valuing the contributions of Native People worldwide, especially Pueblo Indians.

She organizes Yearly concerts and events in which Japanese have a chance to appreciate the unique talents and spirituality of Native Peoples, in song, dance, story and art.

Asaba Art square is located near the Kanazawa Bunko Temple complex, Shomyoji Temple, and is an informal community center, where children and their parents come to play and enjoy.

This beautiful complex with its Lake, Moon-bridge, mountain-paths and picnic areas attracts art events such as Nou Theater, Kyougen Theater, and of course daily visitors. It is the site of a medieval library, Japans oldest.
