Shuichi Okada Residence  

This noren evokes the warm wind caressing the wild mountains in the first days of spring before the mountains have woken up. Their previous noren has an image of the Asahi River in summertime and the sunset over Katsuyama. Each summer, the river is full of ayu fishermen, often including Mr. Okada. During ayu fishing season, the family changes to their Asahi River noren. Mrs. Okada works for the Katsuyama Sightseeing Association at the local train station. She can feel the changing seasons in the wind as she walks to work down the street full of noren.
