Perhaps you had already come across them here & there in Utrecht? They hang, lie and stand in community centres, libraries and cafés, among other places: the results of our artistic research “The Spirit of Kanji“. From 1 October, we will exhibit more of our Japanese arts in ACU Utrecht.
Of course, the Japan Fans study group was super happy when the Enishi team sent them a matcha box out of the blue as a surprise! Take a quick look at what we all got in this Enishi Matcha Box Unboxing!
