In the concert hall "Coronet" on the fourth floor of Okazaki
City Civic Center, both the City government and musicians' groups

Civic Center and the other two buildings, the City and citizens'
groups hold seasonal events.
On the second floor are the Community Center's classrooms,
where visitors can enjoy pottery making and other cultural activities.
