The following is a group effort done from a team of 6 international students (including myself). This project was done during the Osaka, Sozosha International Workshop and was fortunate enough to clinch the silver prize. The topic was "Rashisa" of Kyoto.
Rashisa basically means peace in Japanese. The challenge was to integrate elements of Kyoto and extracting the essence such that tourists can immerge themselves in the culture. The idea was then to have a festival which highlights balance (treasure hunting) and "chado" a symbolic Japanese Tea Ceremony.
