26 Views of LIFE in EDO (1603-1868)
A New century has begun. Yet we are still unable to see beyond today's confusion because our economic and social system are at breaking points. Today's yardsticks and values alone are no longer adequate enough to show us how we can overcome this situation.
We have decided to take ourselves back four hundred years in time to Edo Period to see if we can find values that can act as clues on how we can address today's issues. Edo is the former name of Tokyo, built by feudal goverment. The Edo Period continued for two hundred and sixty five stable years, with an enriching culture and a population of over 1 million living together in a city so hygienic that it amazed the rest of the world.
At that time, less than 10 percent is samurai
in a population and the remainder 90% or more is the citizens. Fortunately, many ukiyoe artists painted the everyday lives of people. Focusing our lenses on "Life in Edo" is extremely revealing. We may also rediscover many values that have disappeared or is on the verge of disappearing from our lives today.
