Big Bambú

A huge installation by American twins Mike and Doug Starn comprises thousands of bamboo poles bound by hand one by one with nylon ropes to create a great ship that floats on top of a bamboo grove in the Kou district. Pinpointing the tairyo-bata flag traditionally flown by fishermen to show off a good catch, visitors can gaze at this 18-meter-long structure blending effortlessly into the Kou district’s rich natural scenery.
