POW! WOW! Japan is centered in Kobe with murals happening in the central city of Kobe. The festival will feature murals happening simultaneously in the residential area of Nagata, right in the heart of busy streets in Sannomiya and by the port of Kobe located within a 5 block radius. This year the event focuses on interaction with the city and to introduce the event in a very urban city of Kobe. Our official paint sponsor Benjamin Moore Japan and Montana-Cans has supplied all artists with their high quality paint to complete the murals.

Mid event includes an open bbq at Harbor Studio with live painting by local artist Ahhi Choi. On the 13th, there will be the performance by the POW! WOW! SCHOOL of MUSIC at the high rise of the KOBE PORT TOWER with an amazing night view. The closing event on the 14th will be held in Meriken Park located in the port of Kobe, where we will have live painting, music, shops and in collaboration with the Swimmy Project for the children, the paint that is used by the artists provided by Benjamin Moore will be upcycled to be used for stamping the fishes on to a canvas.
