Cherishing Flowers, Yearning for the Moon: Nature and Beauty in Japan
Jul 22 at 10:00 am - Aug 22 at 5:00 pm¥1300
The people of Japan have long felt close to nature and have keenly sensed the changing seasons. Bird song and insect cries signalling a season’s arrival, cherry blossoms scattered by the wind and maple leaves turning color, the moon waxing and waning: beauty is discovered in the changing seasons. That careful attention is sensitively conveyed in many waka poems and works of art that depict the flora and natural scenes specific to each season. It offers an opportunity to sense Japan’s seasons and natural world through familiar objects.
