Yokan Yoru no Ume





Ladle up light

I garnered a great deal of inspiration from Kokin Wakashū’s story of yokan’s name. I

imagined how happy people felt when they discovered hidden plum blossoms in the dark

night. I thought the feeling would be similar to the excitement one feels right before opening

a present box. I made my plate envisioning the happiness and surprise people would feel if

they were to lift a cover and find the night sky and stars under it.
