I have always had a deep respect for Japanese craftsmanship, architecture, screens, art work, kimonas, gardens, pots, fabrics, their appreciation of nature, the beauty of aged objects, the fragility of beauty as personified by the blooming of cherry trees.

The are perfectionists. Not the kind that are a pain, but true streak of artistry and respect for craftsmanship of every kind.
