In the world of the tea ceremony, hanging scroll pictures were considered necessary tools. We commonly say, “prepare and take time,” which I think sums up Japanese aesthetics. In painting, I start by making colors, enjoying the process along the way as I paint a picture on a hanging scroll. We'll discuss "kagejiku"—the mounting of a scroll painting on flexible backing so that it can be rolled for easy storage, which is an important part of the ceremony. Since there is a meaning in each brush stroke, you can really feel Japanese aesthetics in the ink paintings. After the tea ceremony, we will make a dedication of gratitude to the Buddhist temple. Finally, I will show you around the temple. Please enjoy this beautiful aspect of Japanese culture.
I have been a painter for over 15 years, and am a former college assistant. It seems no one prefers Japanese painting anymore, so I would like to use traditional techniques and tools to teach future generations. I stick to the classic way of handling painting materials that has been used since ancient times, and I continue my research every day. My work https://www.instagram.com/kimiko_8888/

Meguro Fudoson is a temple located in the Meguro area, surrounded by an old neighborhood. On the way to the temple, there are tiny shopping streets where you will smell spitchcocked teriyaki eels. On the 28th of every month, they hold a tiny festival. If you are around at this time, don’t miss it.
