The Moon

The moon has played a huge role in human culture, and Japan is no exception. The Japanese language is rich with words that describe the moon's phases and its mysterious beauty; the moon is often spoken of in Japan as more of a "friendly neighbor" than a celestial body. Today's guest, Akihiko Toto, is working to bring new life to the ancient art of karakami, a form of traditional papercraft that originally came from China. Join us as we take a look at works of art that incorporate the moon.
