Maniwa City Office (Katsuyama Branch)

Maniwa City Ambassador Toshi Kishida designed this noren. Green represents the forest, light green is the river, red is the warmth of the townspeople and yellow is the light of hope. When many little fireflies come together, they make a much bigger light. The multi-colored fireflies on this noren carry the hopes of nature and humans. Mr. Kishida was born in Tarumizu, Ochiai, Maniwa City in 1953. He is a singer, songwriter and actor in a range of productions, including musicals.
