A distinctive feel for artistic and cultural expression has been passed down continuously in Japan for over more than 10,000 years. Today this proud tradition of arts and culture is among Japan’s greatest strengths.

The wellspring of Japanese arts and culture is its temperate climate and natural abundance. The diversity of the landscape and the constantly shifting cycle of four seasons inspire the awe of nature’s power and appreciation for its beauty. And in Japan, the creative impulses and skills responding to nature and its beauty have been prized and treasured since antiquity.
