The land of the Sleeping Dragon has over the years endured great tragedy. With the Tsunami that rocked its coast in 2004 and the devastating earthquake that lead to a near nuclear catastrophe, the Japanese people have shown undaunted resolve. While most people would have been devastated to a point of inaction, Japan showed the world that one can indeed surmount adversity and get the economy back on its feet. Japan is an oriental island land nation with four main islands and many small uninhabited islands. It is known to be the world’s largest exporter of fish. It is also famous for serving sushi, a raw fish delicacy that will leave you asking for more.
Celebrate Japanese culture with a poster of Japan
There are many ways that one can celebrate Japanese culture via a poster. If you are into martial arts then a samurai poster can do wonders to give you inspiration when you look at it. Another poster that reflects Japan’s vibrant culture is to have a poster containing it's architecture. An art print or a poster of one of the many shrines and temples can give your home a special zen-like atmosphere. A poster of traditional Japanese gardens during cherry blossom season or in autumn, when the leaves turn red, is another possibility. If you like it more modern, an art print of Japan's capital Tokyo is perfect for you. Whichever the case, having a Japanese poster in your house gives your home an oriental feeling.
Traditional Japanese woodblock prints
Woodblock printing, also know as ukiyo-e, is the most artistic genre in Japanese art. Going back many centuries, it still is extremely popular, not only in Japan. Famous artists of this genre include Hokusai, Hiroshige and Kunisada, to name a few. A woodblock print featuring a Japanese landscape or a ancient tale, is best shown through a canvas print or framed art print. But if you prefer a poster, you can sure do that too.
