Since I have been planning a trip to Japan, it seems that I have been obsessed with cherry blossoms and see Japanese inspiration everywhere. And not only because my boyfriend is half Japanese! It started when I was invited to a Japanese artist’s private viewing, followed by a huge exhibit about manga and Nippon culture and, finally, when I was asked to give sushi cooking lessons to a couple of friends. And I must add to that list the latest fashion week and high-end marketing campaigns that are currently taking Japanese codes out of their context and playing with the cliché Western images of the  country of the rising sun.
