The spirit of Japan is best enjoyed through its rich and varied art – a vivid mix of traditional ukiyo-e woodblock prints, monochrome sumi-e ink wash paintings, and colossal sculptures and architectural triumphs, as exemplified by the ‘gallery’ island of Naoshima.
The precision of origami folding, the careful movements and ceremonial flourishes of the sado tea ceremony, even the effortless calligraphy of the kanji and hiragana that make up the written word: so many aspects of the country’s heritage can be summed up as reflections of art, style, design and beautiful imagery. Gain an appreciation for the art of Japan and you will come a small way to understanding the national psyche and the unique history of these enigmatic islands.
