One of Japan's leading young artists, whose imaginative work combines traditional art forms and techniques with the high-tech modern, sketches familiar and unfamiliar sights on the campus of the University of Tokyo and in its historic neighborhood. The set of 24 postcards also includes imaginative renderings of Tokyo's Narita Airport. Both for those familiar with Tokyo and those to whom it is new, these highly original works will open a whole new world.
