In Japan, the search for beauty is related with discipline and the elevation of the spirit; in Shodo, the art of calligraphy, the ancients sought beauty and purity to refine the soul.

Shodo, meaning “the way of calligraphy”, states that the manner in which something is written is not as important as the fact that calligraphy must express the precise meaning possessed by language.

The Hikaru Memorial Museum pays homage to a millennial philosophy that looks for expressive perfection.

The art of communicating by considering forms as well as content remind us the value of the written world.
