Japan is Beautiful

Written on March 25, 2012

Although we don’t need reminding that Japan is beautiful, Amy Katoh has a way of constantly renewing our appreciation of the beauty of Japan.Rather suddenly, Amy announced that for a period of three weeks she is showing a segment of her marvelous collection of Japanese folk textiles in a still-occupied warehouse in her Tokyo neighborhood.  The backdrop of the warehouse’s unfinished, dark wood interior is a dramatic and inspired foil for her beautifully chosen collection.  Have a look.

If you are in Tokyo, or are visiting soon, here’s all the information you’ll need to make a visit and see this fleeting exhibition for yourself:

Thank you, Amy.  I’m so glad you did this.  It’s beautiful.

    thank you for giving us a tour – the setting is perfect. I arrive in Tokyo 2 days after the show closes – but plan to see “Blue and White”.

    The eye of a collector.
    An old soul ( Japanese she must have been in a previous life.)
    Storing and displaying the genius of Japan, for us all to witness.
    We thank you, Amy.
