About us 
 “WA Project TAISHI” is a volunteer-based non-profitable organization to achieve peace throughout the world by introducing Japanese traditional culture both at home and abroad.

 
   
What is KIGO?  
  Sekijyo-KIGO, commonly known as “Calligraphy Performance” performed by a Calligrapher in front of an audience, is a traditional Japanese Spiritual Culture similar to Zen. When the calligrapher writes a word, phrase or wish chosen from their heart on a large paper, the audience’s attention gathers towards the Calligrapher’s appearance and the tip of their brush. Just like a conductor in an orchestra putting together a symphony, a Calligrapher makes everyone’s feeling come together, which strengthens the feeling of prayers. This opportunity will make everyone think aboutworld peace, harmony of the world, and the tolerance of spirit. A Calligrapher wearing Kimono will write a message of world peace and Wa Spirit.

 Ladies amd gentleman,
Thank you all for participating in today’s World Peace Prayer KIGO.
My name is Tatsuhiko Miyamoto. I am the president of “WA Project TAISHI”, “WA Project TAISHI” is a volunteer-based non-profitable organization dedicated to achieve peace throughout the world, by introducing Japanese traditional culture both at home and abroad.
On August 15th this year, we performed Japanese calligraphy performances, wishing for world peace at "Grand Mosque de Paris" in France.
Today, on September 21st, we are here to wish for world peace and once again perform KIGO by Japanese calligraphers, here at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park where the atomic bomb was dropped.
We wish to send "WA Spirit" to the world. “WA Spirit” is a "spirit of circulation, harmony, tolerance and forgiveness " derived from the law of nature. We believe that this philosophy is the answer for every people of the world who live with nature.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being able to pray for world peace together at today's event, “September 21st World Peace Prayer”. Thank you.
