Looking at Snow Country by Kawabata Yasunari

It may help readers to better understand the story of Snow Country by Kawabata Yasunari. The novel tells the tale of a love interest that occurs at a remote hot springs onsen in Yuzawa, though the author doesn’t actually ever give the town a name in the book itself. Men traveling to the town […]

Shofu Yoshimoto Makes Calligraphy Art Tempered by Litearture

Calligraphy is an art form that’s somewhere between writing and painting, which makes it all the more lovely.

The origins stretch back […]

A First Look at Tamba in Hyogo

Tamba in Hyogo Prefecture is perhaps one of the best-known modern cities where traditional yakimono arts continue to be a major way of life. This is perhaps ironic, however, as the town itself is still rather small. Back in 2004 the modern structure of Tamba was realigned.

Sannan, Kaibara, Kasuga, Hikami, Aogaki and Ichijima made […]
