ABOUT KAMUY LUMINA

Kamuy Lumina is an enchanted experience in Moment Factoryʼs Lumina Night Walks series.
Beginning at nightfall, you are invited to pursue an immersive experience along
a 1.2 km walking path into the land of the Ainu gods,
through the Forest of Lake Akan, in Akan Mashu National Park, Hokkaido.

Your journey will begin when you receive your “Rhythm staff”,
which you will be called
upon to use at different moments along the way. After being greeted by your host,
the Owl, you will set off on an enchanted journey!

In this retelling of a traditional Ainu song,
you will play an active role in the unfolding of the story and will be
emotionally immersed through interactivity,
light, sound, scenography and video projection.

THE STORY

The Kamuy are angry and have stopped sending deer and fish
for the hunters because humans have forgotten their respect
for the land. But the Owl and the Jay Bird are determined to get
the humans a second chance by travelling to the land of the Kamuy,
and delivering a musical message on their behalf.

There’s just one problem. The Jay Bird may have the most beautiful
voice in the forest, but he can’t follow a beat! He needs your help
to keep the rhythm.

Join him on his journey, and you might even return with the wisdom
to bring the animals back to the forest!

CHARACTERS

THE OWL PROTECTOR OF THE AINU VILLAGE

His low, calm voice emanates a welcoming atmosphere of
protection, intelligence and wisdom. He has been watching
over the forest and the village for a very long time.

He seeks the perfect messenger to take his plea on behalf
of humans to the land of the Kamuy, but ends up with the clumsy
and excitable Jay Bird. The Owl is skeptical at first, but decides
to help the Jay Bird realize his heroic potential.

Despite his endearing personality, the Owl gets a little annoyed
by the Jay Bird’s chaotic way of doing things. But, their fates
are intertwined, and regardless of their differences,
they make a great duo.

THE JAY BIRD THE OWL'S MESSENGER

He is a peppy and funny little bird. Clumsy and excitable,
he can’t speak very well, but can sing more beautifully than anyone
in the forest. His dream is to sing for the Kamuy, but he is timid
because he can’t keep a beat. To realize his dream, he will need
the audience’s help to keep the rhythm.

When he takes up the Owl’s mission to travel to the land
of the Kamuy, he doesn’t fully realize its importance. But through
this journey, he grows and learns, ultimately becoming
a distinguished hero.
