Mie’s “power of diversity”

Theme – Mie’s power of diversity –

Together with visitors as well as citizens of Mie, MieMu explores the “diversity” and its power which are typically found in the prefecture. By making use of such diversity and power and transmitting more information on them, we sure can energize different areas of the prefecture and their residents and foster their abilities to “create new cultures” as well as to “further develop the modern society and open the way to the future.”
 

Power gained through the exploration of diversity

By exploring Mie’s rich nature, history and culture, each citizen can rediscover the attractiveness of, have a deeper affection for and become more proud of the prefecture, and then vitalize his or her local community.

Power to create new cultures

Through diversity, we can expand our possibilities and choices. Moreover, a fusion of different things could lead to the creation of something new after repelling and stimulating one another. In short, diversity is a source of power to “create new cultures.”

Power to further develop the modern society and open the way to the future

By exploring and utilizing the “diversity” of Mie and transmitting information on it, we are able to contribute to the promotion of mutual understanding and the establishment of better bonds among different local communities. Such activities of ours also help to enhance people’s capabilities to “further develop the modern society and open the way to the future” so that they can efficiently solve a variety of problems which their communities will face.

“Diversity” of Mie
Mie prefecture is located roughly in the middle of the Japanese archipelago. It stretches from north to south and is surrounded by a wide variety of natural landscapes, including a deep ocean with a depth of 2,000 meters and high mountains with an altitude of nearly 1,700 meters. In terms of the richness in nature, Mie is just like a miniature version of the Japanese archipelago which has both subarctic and subtropical biomes in itself. Such rich and diversified natural environments have had much influence on different lifestyles of people and their history. Since ancient times, Mie has enjoyed prosperity as a key junction for traffic. Besides, as a cultural intersection between East and West Japan and as a place where mountain and maritime cultures meet each other, it also has created new and diverse cultures through active interactions among different people and cultures.
