One hundred years after the death of Tenshin Okakura, director Katsuya Matsumura pays tribute to this legendary artistic leader considered the “father” of Japanese modern art.

Born in 1863,  Okakura Tenshin became a well-known government official and an artistic leader. He was also a man of international perspective; he published “The Book of Tea” in English and introduced Japanese and other East Asian cultures and art to westerners. TENSHIN follows the great Okakua Tenshin as he establishes himself as a trailblazer in the art world who ultimately lead to the development of modern Japanese art in the Meiji era (a period during which dramatic westernization took place).
