The “Wild Goose” is a bird recognized as the bird of Kawagoe City, and has many historical connections with Kawagoe, as it has long been included in poems describing the Kawagoe region and is also known as the “First Wild Goose Castle” in Kawagoe City. In this production, Tomoko Matsuoka drew a large figure of a wild goose and then asked over 500 citizens to put their handprints on it in various colors to complete the work.
