The fictional castle town section drawn by Nobunaga Motoi is sold for sale at Mie Matsusaka On November 12, 13:33
The Memorial Hall in Matsusaka City, Mie Prefecture, which displays materials by Nobunaga Motoi, a national scholar from the Edo period, has launched a unique initiative to “sell” a plot of a fictional castle town drawn by Nobunaga in order to compensate for the income that has fallen due to the effects of the new coronavirus.
At the age of 19, Nobunaga Motoi, a national scholar from Matsusaka City who represented the Edo period, painted a drawing of a fictional castle town called “The Wayahara-shita-shita-e”, and the drawing was designated as an important cultural property of the country.
The Honi Nobunaga Memorial Hall in Matsusaka City, which stores and exhibits this drawing, has temporarily dropped to one-tenth of the annual number of visits due to the new coronavirus.
For this reason, in order to compensate for the decrease in income in the memorial hall, we decided to sell 55 sections of the town’s residential areas, which are pictured in the drawing, but having not shown the owner, as a return gift for crowdfunding that solicits donations on the Internet.
There are four courses of donations from 10,000 yen to 50,000 yen per unit, and you will receive a reproduction drawing and a certificate of rights with the name of the person who donated it in the compartment.
The application will be held until the 11th of next month, and the money raised will be used to purchase equipment to deliver videos introducing the exhibits.
Mr. Nobutake Higashi, director of the Honi Nobunaga Memorial Museum, said, “I want people from the Reiwa era to feel the joy of complete the town that Nobunaga painted in the Edo period.”
