On October 29th the Re:Earth Open Air event was held in Oushu city, Iwate prefecture. The event was planned and organised by SAVE TAKATA.
Official Re:Earth Open Air home-page (in Japanese):
Young people gathered on Taneyama plateau, at a place called Constellation Forest. This is a camp-site from where the stars can be seen very clearly. DJs played music throughout the night.
This event, on the southern coast of Iwate, was planned with the following objectives in mind:
1) create a place where young people can gather.
2) local people create a new festival that young people will look forward to.
3) to develop a kind of celebration that will appeal to everyone around the world.
4) increase awareness of Iwate through local cuisine.
A large number of local young people participated as volunteer staff. The skies were clear and looking up, one could look upon a beautiful sea of stars.
The hope is that this event will be held annually from now on.
