Scenic Beauty

Long ago, the Japanese fostered a culture of reverence for nature.

Fed and nourished by nature, they lived in close harmony with it.

Poets sang of scenic beauty with an eye to yugenー ethereal beauty

beyond words and analysis.

When we encounter mystery in a landscape

the yugen world of the ancients grows apparent.
