Wall painting & Design In Shizuoka Prefecture

Wall Paintings in Fukuroi City
SN3O0151
I was walking along the Oida River in Fukuroi City in search of sights when I espied these seemingly old paintings along the bank shoring!
Technically not a wall, these large concrete shoring had been obviously painted for some kind of city promotion.
I decide to have a closer look!
SN3O0150
If I remember well these blue drawings are Mount Fuji mascots used all over the Prefecture!
SN3O0152
I wonder why one is smiling and the others not.
What could have been the message?
SN3O0153
now, I know that the owl, « fukuro » is the unofficial bird of Fukuroi City because of the almost identical pronunciation, although the kanji characters are completely unrelated!
SN3O0154
my impression is that these painting date back to when the Soccer World Cup came to Japan as the drawing celebrates Ecopa Stadium which was used for the World Cup in Fukuroi City!
SN3O0155
Oranges, of which Shizuoka Prefecture is the biggest producer in Japan and an owl again!
SN3O0156
Basket ball? At the time the Japanese Professional didn’t exist yet…
SN3O0157
Pity that the years and water have made it difficult to discern from far away!

Wall Paintings in Yaizu City!
SN3O5043
Yesterday I was ambling along streets in Yaizu City in search of the manhole covers I had found out on the net when I reached a small bridge over the river crossing the city into the sea (yaizu City is one the major fishing harbors in Japan!).
SN3O5049
The pavements in the vicinity of the bridge were decorated with some interesting tiles I was going to take pictures of when I noticed paintings on the wall along the pathway of the very quiet river full of Japanese carps!
SN3O5033
The paintings had been ordered to real artists by the city to help promote its tourism!
SN3O5034
This particular series depicted the Yaizu Harbor Festival, a major one in Shizuoka Prefecture which is held every year!
SN3O5035
The local fishermen must be really looking forward to it!
SN3O5036
O Mikoshi/Portable Shrines!
SN3O5037
At least one lady seems after all to be part of it!
I will have to investigate!
SN3O5048
As I amble along I found out that the river was in fact crossed by three bridges to allow the many avenues to go through and had a glimpse at another painting on another wall!
SN3O5038
A legendary hero in a fiery scene with an erupting Mount Fuji in the background!
SN3O5044
There were more to be seen from the third bridge!
SN3O5039
They were all about and ancient legendary hero with hints of religion!
SN3O5040
Confrontation!
SN3O5041Offerings!
SN3O5042
Praying for succor!
SN3O5043
Deity Symbols?

Wall Paintings in Okitsu, Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City!
SN3O5151
I was walking back from Seikenji Temple (report coming!) to Okitsu JR Station when I felt the pangs of hunger.
As most restaurants were closed for lunch on that day in this neighborhood I decide to see what a local supermarket had to offer when I espied a wall painting in the distance!
I couldn’t investigate it as I don’t know when I will be able to come back to Okitsu!
SN3O5153
It had been painted quite a while ago but I suspect that the government is Shimizu Ku is behind it and probably had it done before they were merged into Shizuoka City!
SN3O5154
Just before the « Map » Mount Fuji and various fish had been painted.
I’ll show you later why Mount Fuji was so prominent!
As for the fish Shimizu is a major fishing harbor (it also has a major industrial harbor!)!
SN3O5156
I carefully checked and the fish represented there are really fish caught offshore!
SN3O5157
Right half of the picture:
Interestingly enough most of the fish are solitary!
Can you recognize them: True Seabream, File Fish, Puff Fish/Globe Fish, Scabbard Fish, Grouper, etc.
SN3O5158
Left half of the picture:
Here the fish are mostly in pairs!
Can you recognize them: Grey Seabream, True Seabream, Horse mackerel, etc.
SN3O5159
Crabs!
We do have quite a few in the Suruga Bay, and some very rare!
SN3O5155
The Map!
SN3O5160
The right half also featuring local products, such as citruses and tea!
SN3O5161
The Okitsu River is famous for its wild Ayu trouts!
SN3O5162
The right half with plenty of oranges!
SN3O5152
Can you see it?
SN3O5163
Mount Fuji beyond the supermarket!

Wall Design: Numazu Ni Primary School
SN3O4850
I did a lot of walking in the back streets of Numazu City yesterday, but it certainly was worth it!
SN3O4849
i suddenly discovered this wall right in front of me!
I wondered what kind of building it was until I got nearer and found out it was of the building annexes of Primary School!
SN3O4851
Numazu Ni (2nd) Primary School is a very large one by Japanese standards.
Being located close to the sea I understood the reasons behind the remarkable design!
SN3O4852
A bright sun and the sea?
SN3O4853
Coming closer I was impressed to find out it was a giant mosaic!
