In holding the "Nokogirian Bunko (Library) Fair"
Born in Ichinomiya, I left my hometown in my mid-twenties.Then, after a quarter of a century, I becameinvolved with Ichinomiya again.
The reason for this was a photo of a "saw-tooth roof factory (Kouba)" published in a nationalnewspaper.It was the original scenery of my hometown.
If you think about it now, it might have been nostalgia.Ten years later, I met "Nokogiri 2" and was
shocked.The nostalgia that I had on the saw-tooth roof turned into "expectations."
After that, expectations grew into "potential."A space of "Utsuho (hollow)" full of creativity. And the people I meet here.
In addition, while exploring the changes in the region from the origin of my hometown to the present,
I have been consistently looking at the scenery of the " saw-tooth roof factory (Kouba)" peculiar to
western Owari from the distant past to the present. Something that has created this area is lurking,
and I have come to think that the "potential" of the future can be seen from here.
And the memorandum that I started writing without seeing the future is "Fragment" Landscape with
Nokogiriane "".This memorandum is currently underway, but one of the things I realized again is the
self-deprecation and the closedness of the region, which tend to symbolize Ichinomiya in the post-war
temporary trend of "Gachaman."
I described it as "the curse of Gachaman".
The area of Owari originally formed a unique and diverse climate. By being released from the curse of
Gachaman, it will become a more interesting hometown. By "opening" the "Nokogiryane", which includes
those that are no longer in use, the possibilities of the future can be seen.
This time, I will hold the "Nokogillian Bunko Fair" by borrowing "Nitsubo no me" (presided by Mr.
Toshikatsu Aoki), a corner of "Nokogiri 2".
According to the presiding officer, "Nitsubo's no me" is a "thought experiment place". The "fragment"
landscape with Nokogiriyane"" is also in the "thought experiment" stage. And this fair is nothing but a "thought experiment" called "dialogue" with the "you" that we meet here.
Even if the beginning is far away, someday, while looking at the "point at infinity" that intersects
