Although we don’t need reminding that Japan is beautiful, Amy Katoh has a way of constantly renewing our appreciation of the beauty of Japan.

Rather suddenly, Amy announced that for a period of three weeks she is showing a segment of her marvelous collection of Japanese folk textiles in a still-occupied warehouse in her Tokyo neighborhood.  The backdrop of the warehouse’s unfinished, dark wood interior is a dramatic and inspired foil for her beautifully chosen collection.  Have a look.

    Thank you for providing these photos. Though I will be in Mill Valley, California the next three weeks, I can only wish that I was there to wander through the warehouse.

    These photos are wonderful and do your show justice, Amy. Thanks for exhibiting your fascinating collection – it was a great treat to see it and thanks for so graciously answering questions! I blogged about it for my Grandma Mary Lou just now:). Thanks again.
