#8 Dou


The theme is “Dou ‒ the way of beauty”. Shodou (calligraphy), kadou (flower arrangement), sadou (tea ceremony), kidou, kendou (Japanese fencing), judou, kyudou (Japanese archery)…. Most of the Japanese art and martial art use the term, “dou”. “Dou” expresses the way to live, the life itself. It is the aesthetic that leads to the Zen philosophy. In the long history, more conservative philosophies have become more popular. However, some people say that the Japanese art was full of dynamism for life. This time, the visual arts were created by incorporating this dynamism into Shodou, Kadou, and Sadou.
