I specially designed this shirt with the victims of the recent Japanese earthquake and tsunami in mind.
The shirt depicts the islands of Matsushima (meaning the "Pine Islands" in Japanese) near Sendai along with a well-known haiku often attributed (although erroneously) to Matsuo Basho, expressing the poet's loss of words at viewing the islands.
Matsushima! Ah, Matsushima! Matsushima!
Matsushima, traditionally considered to be one of the 3 most scenic spots in all of Japan, is representative of the beauty of the region of northeastern Japan that was hit in the earthquake and tsunami.
The calligraphy was done by my mom, who lives safely in another part of Japan!
