ZENKON (善根。「ぜんごん」とも)










ZENKON is Buddhist term. It means the act which becomes the origin of a good reward. Moreover, it means the thing which becomes the origin of various goodness.

Originally, ZENKON is Buddhist terminology and it means a basis of good conduct. The thought of ZENKON is handed down from the old days in Kagawa, and hospitality for a pilgrim on the Shikoku Pilgrimage is still left as customs.

Because Setouchi Triennale is pilgrimage of art in Seto Inland Sea, this pavilion called ZENKON where is hospitable to the pilgrims.



At ZENKON, the people who dropped in are met by chance, and speak each other, and be friends. A circle of nature and people’s smile is made there, and pleasant music and a whisper of sea breeze sound from Seto Inland Sea.

The circle of the relation of the people born in ZENKON is called RENKON.
