Or in other words; small birdshop. Yes, this is our studio for the next 6 weeks of working on our project “The art of empathy”. Today we took the bikes and cycled through town to fuel up on our coffee and started to redo the studio to our ideas and needs. The results we love! It felt strangely inspiring to be there and to think of all the things we want to do in the upcoming days/weeks.
One thing strikes us in our first four days in Japan; the super-friendliness of the Japanese people. Obviously not all of them are open to the idea of foreigners, but those who are make all the effort to provide a warm welcome. Whether this is the concept of omoiyari is for us to find out. W’ll keep you posted!
