Former Japanese soccer representative Hidetoshi Nakata came to the Kodo Apprentice Centre in November 2011, and his visit was recently introduced on his official website. Nakata wants more people to know about Japanese culture, so he created an "opportunity" to prompt the succession and development of culture by launching project "ReVALUE NIPPON" and traveling around Japan to collect information. Niigata is the latest place to be featured in the series, which introduces handicrafts, food and performing arts throughout Japan. On the mobile site (pay to use), there are some videos of the featured contents. We hope you'll take a look.
