This site is about how Japanese aesthetic values are expressed in architecture, gardens, folk arts and crafts, everyday life and other areas that lie outside the scope of most museums. We hope this will provide a useful resource for those interested in Japanese culture.
CLICK ON THE COPYRIGHTED IMAGES BELOW TO OPEN GALLERIES OF PHOTOGRAPHS ON THESE TOPICS TAKEN BY THE SITE AUTHORS OVER A NUMBER OF YEARS. The last gallery houses Zen-inspired photographs not necessarily taken in Japan.
See the menu at the top right of this page for a discussion of key topics (AESTHETIC ISSUES) and books by the two site authors (ABOUT US).
