The reunion was warm and friendly, reflecting the relationship between the sister states. The reception featured food from Oregon, and all the participants received bottles of wine from a Willamette Valley vineyard. During the reception, Mr. TAD is also home to the Onomatopoeia Rooftop, a collection of play equipment for children designed by Taku Satoh, inspired by the sounds used in onomatopoeias. The museum is an architectural marvel, and its wide glass windows give a panoramic view of the breathtaking Tateyama mountain range. This exhibit included powerful works from around the world, and my favorite was March of the Clowns by American artist Albert Bloch. This event also coincided with the International Hokuriku Kogei artisan crafts Summit and showcased some of the works submitted to its Worlds Kogei competition.
