[A-Z of Japan]…Illustrations by Yoriko Yoshida

Being a lover of all things Japan, I was thrilled to come across this collection of illustrations by Yoriko Yoshida. They are an A-Z of many things pertaining to Japanese Culture!

M - Manga

K - Karaoke

I - Ikebana (Japanese art of flower arrangement)

Z - Zen

T - Takarazka (women's theater performances in which the women dress/act as men)

S - Soba

O - Origami

B – Bonsai

I love art sets like this. It’s always fun to illustrate things in an alphabetical sense…the fact that these are a Japan related is the icing on the cake! Be sure to check out Yoshido’s portfolio for all the other letters (except Q & X)!
