Thank you for reading another zen Monday. ありがとうございました。

Every Monday is zen Monday, a weekly dose of zen in Japanese ink painting format, coupled with one Japanese word.

Zen Mondays are back from the prolonged hiatus, and ready to share some of the inspiring moments that made up that long break. Welcome to a brand new Japan travel journal. Thank you for your patience.
