C(埼玉県川口市)のGPSアート

International cooperation by walking! GPS art of “C” all over Japan✨

International cooperation by GPS art of “C” onto Kawaguchi! From April 20, 2024 (Saturday) to May 31, 2024, a new project of “Walk in Her Shoes 2024”, “Let’s Walk and Draw “C” on the Earth! Let’s start GPS art!
Walk in Her Shoes 2024″ is an international cooperation program to raise awareness about global water issues and the current situation of women and girls in developing countries by simply walking at a time and place of your choice. Let’s draw the “C” of CARE with GPS art and send it to the world!

This course takes you on a walk around the Kawaguchi Transmitting Station of the Nippon Cultural Broadcasting (JOQR), where you can draw GPS art. The station was established in the early Showa period as the Shingo Broadcasting Station of the Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK). There is an urban legend that the station was used for jamming enemy broadcasts during the Pacific War, or that it transmitted the opening broadcast of the war and the Emperor Hirohito’s broadcast at the end of the war. After the war, it was disposed of to Nippon Cultural Broadcasting, and in the 21st century, a concealed broadcasting station was discovered underground on the site.
Please try it when you visit Kawaguchi City!
