War is the most direful mistake humanity has made, and it shall never be repeated again. From Japan, the only victim of two atomic bombings, we send this message and prayers to the world.
It is our hope to spread peace and love through art, in the form of ZUIZUI’s original works of shogei. Japanese Calligraphy Art will go on a journey to spread peace throughout the world.
