Wisdom in Edo

Edo was the name for 17th to 19th century Tokyo, Japan. Although life was very primitive then, people loved art, music, performance, textile and food. They lived simply, yet knew what was enough to make them happy and feel at peace. Their wisdom, creativity, and hard work are reminders of how to live everyday life sincerely in our century.
