After two years of planning, “Kimono As Art: The Landscapes of Itchiku Kubuto” is well underway in Canton. The exhibit at the Canton Museum of Art has immersed our community in Japanese culture and traditions.
Like beauty, luxury is in the eye of the beholder. To a harried couple with children, luxury might mean an exquisite dinner with fine wine at a five-star restaurant.
