SAGA SEA concept

 Japanese  Nederlands  English


Arita ware which came to Europe from Imari Port through "the sea" (SEA) by Netherlands East India Company 400 years ago.

New "encounter" that Netherlands people took a trip to "the sea" (SEA) 150 years ago, and caused with Saga. Encounter with the Netherlands turned Saga.


Then various people come and go, and both color of skin and hair color accomplish rich development like world reduced drawing with various culture when they walk Netherlands town at the present when 150 years passed.


We learn diversity from the Netherlands and, like "north sea jazz festival" started in 1976 in the Netherlands, aim at interchange that rooted in area through music.


Saga and reencounter of Netherlands create new culture.




SAGA SEA De reünie tussen Saga en Nederland die de cultuur van de 22e eeuw zal vormen 

400 jaar geleden werd in Arita vervaardigd porselein vanuit de haven van Imari over de "SEA" verscheept en door de Verenigde Oostindische Compagnie op de Europese markt gebracht.

Later, zo' n 150 jaar geleden, was er opnieuw een ontmoeting tussen Saga en Nederland die Japan sterk heeft beïnvloed door de invoering van nieuwe technologieën.

Nu, 150 jaar later, wanneer je in Nederland op straat loopt, kom je mensen tegen van allerlei achtergronden. Het is een hoog ontwikkeld land dat door zijn verscheidenheid aan culturen aandoet als een microkosmos die de hele wereld symboliseert.

Geïnspireerd door de diversiteit in Nederland streven we naar een uitwisseling op lokaal niveau met muziek als medium. De bron van de bezieling van dit evenement is het "North Sea Jazz Festival" dat sinds 1976 in Nederland wordt gehouden.

Deze hereniging tussen Saga en Nederland zal leven geven aan een nieuwe cultuur.




SAGA SEA The reunion between Saga and the Netherlands that will give life to the culture of the 22nd century

400 years ago, porcelain manufactured in Arita was shipped from Imari port across the "SEA" and introduced to the European market by the Dutch East India Company.

Later, 150 years ago, another encounter between Saga and the Netherlands greatly influenced the country of Japan through the introduction of new technologies.

Nowadays, 150 years later, if you walk through the streets of the Netherlands, you will come across people of all sorts of backgrounds. It is a highly developed country that, due to its variety in cultures, looks like a microcosm symbolizing the whole world.

Inspired by the diversity in the Netherlands, we aim to have a community-based exchange through music. This event finds its roots in the "North Sea Jazz Festival" that has been held in the Netherlands since 1976.

This reunion between Saga and the Netherlands will give life to a new culture.
