You will find your soul-work as in soul mate here. Many people are often unsure why they choose this work, but not that work, especially in Japanese art. We will guide your journey to meet the piece that you can connect with deep inside. All the works are from our sources in Kyoto. Misako (the owner) came from a Kimono merchant family with two and a half centuries of history. It enables her to get to these sources. Dive in, and let's start.

Most of the time, labels confine works of art and crudely points viewers in a direction that precludes imagination. Strangely enough this time attaching a label to Japanese scrolls will achieve quite the opposite. Look at these scrolls as “works on paper”, this is what most of them are. Suddenly, your imagination is flooded with known images of “works on paper” – such as Renaissance drawings in brown ink , a graphite on paper by a German artist, or lithographs by contemporary artists. The words “works on paper” spurred a journey through a series of your familiar pieces. At the end of the journey lays a scroll. As you come back to a scroll in front of you , your dialogue with the piece starts to have a different dimension. The work is quietly awaiting and inviting you to engage without the need of many words, and now you accept the invitation spontaneously.
