What is 萬葉楽 / PEN

The oldest book of songs in Japan, “Manyoshu” (萬葉集 in Japanese), collected wide varieties of songs from the emperors to soldiers, from Tohoku area to Kyusyu area, about loves, lives, landscapes, things, etc.

“Manyoshu” also reflects many views of nature in a lot of lives involving and feelings of nature in that era. These are the origins of our present lives, some of which we forgot.

萬葉楽 originates Manyoshu (萬葉集), aims at creating a culture of human lives in diversity with nature for a long time like Manyoshu .

It is the concept above that “PEN” is an abbreviation from “Play with Eternal Nature”.

But lives with nature are never limited to “play”. Therefore, PEN expands its meaning in “P” and we would like you to imagine and create your own ” P **** Eternal Nature”.
P**** = perform play, practice, pray, preamble,,,,,
