Sentimental Blue Flag: Woodblock Artist Shuzo Ikeda's Heritage

センチメンタルの青い旗~木版画家 池田修三が遺したもの~

Shuzo Ikeda (1922-2004) was born in Kisakata town, Akita. He worked on woodblock print, moku hanga, as his primary artistic pursuit.
The characteristics of his work are brilliant color usage, pop design, and emotionally rich, simple, and warm style. Distinctive depictions of girls are sometimes called "sentimental." Now, his works are becoming popular around Japan, particularly among young generation.
The girls that Ikeda drew have blue shadow around their eyes and slight sadness in expressions. Why did he add the essence of sadness on girls' face? We tried to reproduce Ikeda's work using the left woodblock. You would understand his techniques to express brilliant color, and his deep thoughts from the interview with people who are fascinated with his works.

Satoyama

Nature is rich in blessings but can also be harmful to human life. People across Japan have been resilient, learning their lessons and passing them on for generations. Their countless efforts to cope with the harsh environment eventually created a world of bounty -- a world that's sustained by a delicate balance between diverse plants and creatures. Satoyama is a living history of humans, animals and the natural environment that have survived together for centuries. This 8K documentary series captures the supreme beauty of the Japanese countryside -- a place where gentle slopes left by landslides have been carved into rice terraces, where meltwater from heavy snow is used to nurture colorful carp, and where lush grasslands have been created on volcanic ash. And it shows how people can rediscover traditional, sustainable agriculture and benefit from the unique satoyama ecosystem.
An international co-production between NHK and ARTE. Available in 8K/4K/HD.

I’d like to see you again in happiness

A Mongolian reporter knew “Detainment in Mongolia” when she started to work in Japan as a reporter in 2011. The reason she knew it is that she read an article which reported that the people who built National University of Mongolia, her alma mater, were Japanese detainees. Comparing to “Detainment in Siberia”, few people know “Detainment in Mongolia”.
To know “Detainment in Mongolia”, she covered a meeting which Japanese detainees gather once a year. At the meeting, she met a Japanese detainee who lost his both legs during detention. His name is Mr. Tomohiro (94).
In 2019, Mr. Tomohiro decided to visit Mongolia as a last journey of memorial and the reporter also accompanied his journey. Through the interview with Mr. Tomohiro and Mongolian who know the detention, the valuable historical materials, it made it possible to reveal the reality of detainment in Mongolia.
Why did they detain the Japanese? What do they think that approximately 2000 people died due to the hard labor? Who is the assailant and who is the victim? Who has the responsibility for that? Through the documentary program, we would like you to know and think of what happen at the time.

The Japanese Hospitality Challenge - Bride & Pride Spin off -

日本のおもてなしに挑戦 ~ドラマ「花嫁のれん」番外編 ~

Japan's Omotenashi culture is renowned as "the world’s best hospitality”. In 2020, the number of traditional inns (ryokan) and hotels in Japan exceeded 52,000. Of all the accommodations in Japan, there is one long-established ryokan in Ishikawa Prefecture that stands apart from the others, voted Japan’s number 1 for 36 consecutive years.
KAGAYA. Kagaya has attracted guests from all over Japan and the world for over 110 years, to enjoy the best Omotenashi hospitality in the world.

A project has been launched to have six foreign residents living in Japan, undergo the top class Nakai (staff at ryokan who welcome, serve and attend to the needs of their guests) training at Kagaya. Over 100 women applied and six women were chosen. They are from the United States, Mexico, Spain, Uzbekistan, the Philippines, and Taiwan. How will the Japanese spirit of hospitality, Omotenashi be understood by these women?

The ten days of Nakai training at Kagaya is challenging to say the least. Wearing a heavy kimono is a struggle in itself. The spirit of Omotenashi dwells in everything, not only in etiquette, but even in a single greeting. We journey with these women from six different cultures and value systems and witness the empathy and conflicts that arise. While learning about traditional Japanese culture through Nakai training the six women realize that Omotenashi holds a different meaning for each person.

"Good memories are treasures of the heart, and creating treasures of the heart for our guests is the heart of hospitality.” - Bride & Pride

The genesis of this project is the daytime drama series "Bride & Pride," broadcast nationwide by Tokai Television via Fuji Television Network and distributed in more than 20 countries and regions around the world. Set in a long-established ryokan in Ishikawa Prefecture, the series depicts Japan's world-class hospitality, and the famous line from the show "good memories are treasures of the heart" is now recognized globally. What these six women have in common is the desire to create "treasures of the heart," just like the spirit that inhabits this drama series. Six women take on the challenge of training as Nakai at Japan's oldest ryokan. Through laughter and tears what do they discover in their search for the essence of hospitality?


“世界最高のホスピタリティ”として名高い、日本の「おもてなし」文化。2020年、日本全国にある「旅館・ホテル」軒数は、5万2千軒を超えた。その全ての宿泊施設の中で、「プロが選ぶ36年連続日本一」に輝いた老舗旅館が、石川県にある。その名も、「加賀屋」。創業110年以上の歴史を誇るその旅館には、日本一の「おもてなし」を堪能しようと、国内のみならず、世界中から多くの宿泊客が訪れる。
この日本一の旅館「加賀屋」で、6人の在留外国人が仲居修行に挑むプロジェクトがスタートした。100名を超える応募者から選ばれたのは、アメリカ、メキシコ、スペイン、ウズベキスタン、フィリピン、台湾で生まれ、現在は日本で暮らしている6人の女性たち。彼女たちにとって、日本のスピリットである「おもてなし」はどのように映るのか。
10日間にも及ぶ「加賀屋」での仲居修行は、簡単な道のりではない。重たい着物を着付けるのも一苦労。礼儀作法だけでなく、挨拶一つにしても、全てに「おもてなし」の精神は宿っている。6つの文化、6つの価値観。その中で芽生える、共感や衝突…。日本の伝統文化を学びながら、仲居修行を通して6人は気づく。それぞれにとって「おもてなし」は違うということに。
「良き思い出は心の宝 心の宝を作っていただくことこそ、おもてなしの心」
この企画の発端となったのは、昼ドラ「花嫁のれん」。東海テレビ・フジテレビ系全国ネットで放送し、世界20以上の国と地域で放送・配信されている。石川県の老舗旅館を舞台に、日本が世界に誇る「おもてなしの心」を描き、「良き思い出は心の宝」という言葉が世界中で話題となった。それぞれ文化も性格も異なる6人に共通していたのは、このドラマに宿るスピリットのように、“心の宝”を作りたいという思いである。日本一の老舗旅館で仲居修行に挑戦した6人の女性たち。時には笑い、時には涙し、「おもてなし」の真髄を探し求めた先で得たものとは。
