Midori Japan

Midori Japan

If you had to choose just a colour to represent Japan - green, or midori, might not be the first thing that comes to mind.  
Red perhaps? red and white? Possibly indigo blue, elegant black or blossom pink.
But take a look around.
Peaceful, inviting, textural green. Evocative, lush and lingering green. Delicious, protective, happy green. Boldly bright and refreshing green.
Moss cloaking stone statues and rocks, matcha flavoured sweets, swaying bamboo, early spring greens, young gingko leaves,  subtle sculpted hedges, sushi, koi ponds, tea, ceramics.
Come. Take a look for yourself.
