Journeys of the Heart

This beautiful Japanese calligraphy was created especially for Esprit by Shotei Ibata, one of the many skilled artisans (sensei) we have the pleasure of introducing our clients to in Japan. The English translation is ``Journeys of the Heart``, which truly fits what we seek to offer our clients.

Throughout this website you will see this calligraphy used to bring attention to more than a millennium of Japanese poetry.
