Gion Festival by Lynita Shimizu

Many guests have asked us about the woodblock prints displayed on our walls.  They are all done by artist Lynita Shimizu, from Pomfret Center, Connecticut.  Her technique derives from her time learning in Japan under renowned traditional artist in Kyoto, and contemporary artist in Tokyo.  Since the mid-70s, Ms. Shimizu has been introduced in many publications, received many awards and held numerous exhibits.  We love her art.  Using a very difficult, traditional technique, she creates art that is not only beautiful, but also warm and playful.  Please visit her website for more information.  You can also pick up a brochure at the restaurant.
