A shooting glimpse of my recent trip to Tokyo

I was invited by Isetan-Mitsokushi to participate in their beautiful Tanseikai festival. I was hosted in a most gracious and elegant manner, allowing me to return to New York with so much more than when I left.  I now have a great appreciation for a very old and ancient heritage with many customs that are still observed today. I have seen new shades of colors, new sounds and a completely new way of daily living.  The wildlife and natural foliage is so vivid, and the respect which the Japanese community has for this beauty is admirable. They have seamlessly connected the old to the new to the ever present. I am looking forward to my next trip, and meanwhile, hope some of this beauty trickles into my design aesthetic
