Seminar promoting "The Wonders of FUKUOKA" and a joint reception staged with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA)(7/17)

The displays featured examples of "Kiuso" (wooden bullfinch), a type of woodcraft that can be found at Dazaifu Tenmangu, a shrine that is famously dedicated to the god of learning Sugawara no Michizane, as well as a craft that is representative of Japanese manufacturing, specifically "Hakata Ningyo" (Hakata Dolls), which has more than 400 years of history and tradition.

"Kiuso" are based on bullfinch birds.
