What is PROJECT9b?

"Project 9b" is a new project to promote tourism and share information with visitors of Nasu.
Art Director Akira Himekawa, world-famous Manga Artist and illustrator, reimagined the historical
motifs of the Nine-tailed Fox into a modern characterization, which was then animated using AR(augmented reality) and motion picture.
The Nine-tailed Fox and the characters born from its nine tails will serve as tour guides for
exploring Nasu, showing visitors all there is to discover and delight in.

The Nine-tailed Fox is a symbol of the power and mystery of Nasu. In order to bring the myth of Nasu's great nature back to life, Akira Himekawa helped launch this project. Seiichi
Tanaka, Vice Director of Tetsuya Chiba MANGA Innovation Research Laboratory, served as supervising editor.

The next time you visit Nasu, the Nine-tailed Fox will welcome you - in the forest, at the waterfront, or in the shadow of the stone...
