I love tiles. - Let's walk around Japan and see its lovely tiles! 


"Where is Michiko, do you know?" a mother calls. "I saw her walking past the such-and-such store," a neighbor replies. This kind of exchange was typical of the downtown "shopping street" on which I was raised. Ours was not a corner store, but it had a tearoom in back and a storefront show window displaying confections, cakes, and ice cream with a side counter for selling cigarettes, and it made me the envy of my friends. While exchanging greeting with the adults who patronized our tearoom or whom I frequently met on my excursions, I explored the adjacent district, the district beyond that, and yet the district beyond that, and this was the start of my life. I still love to walk about town, even now. Searching out "town treasures," I capture with my camera the scenery I encounter.

Tiles, among the things I see, are something that call to me, saying, "Look at us." Exquisitely made tiles, which certainly must not have been cheap, convey to me the building owner's proud feelings and make me want to stop and touch them. On seeing a single flower tile that has remained, I will feel moved to imagine the kind of building it once belonged to, and the tile becomes a sort of time machine. It seems curious to me that stores of similar styles with similar kind of tiles are found all over Japan.

This exhibition offers that same fun of walking around, stopping to gaze at that interesting corner cigarettes shop or that fancy beauty salon building, and delighting in seeing building with your own eye.
