Japanese Art & Culture
When does a poem become a picture? What is the tea ceremony? How were the first color woodblock prints made? Arts and crafts offer a window into Japanese culture, reflecting its history, technology, beliefs, and every-day life. Every piece of Japanese art tells us something about the environment and the culture it was developed in, so that we can see how and why people make their art.
