*Yotsutoji book-binding: Yotsutoji binding is favored for its simplicity, making it accessible for beginners, artists, and crafters. It provides a functional and visually appealing way to create books, notebooks, or journals. The exposed thread or cord along the spine can also be decorative, allowing for creative variations in the binding process.

*Sumi-ink painting: Sumi-e ink painting, often simply referred to as Sumi-e, is a traditional East Asian painting style that primarily uses black ink (known as “sumi” in Japanese) to create various shades and brushwork. This style of painting originated in China and was later adopted and refined in Japan.
