Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This project explores potential actions for revitalizing an abandoned Shinto shrine, Shirahige Daijin, located in Kyoto, Japan. To understand the history and significance of the shrine, the project team conducted interviews with neighbors, attended festivals at active shrines, and visited local government offices. The information collected was then combined into an interactive map that includes photographs, 3D scans, 2D maps, and soundscapes from the site. To explore options for revitalization, the team visited other well-maintained shrines to determine how they attract visitors, generate money, and are maintained. They also spoke to neighbors of Shirahige Daijin to get their views on revitalization. The team also created a stakeholder matrix and a list of community-based future steps for revitalization.
