 When the artist returned to Italy, he continued to collaborate with some of the largest communication agencies, and then dedicated himself completely to illustration. His illustrations are the result of a combination of nineteenth-century graphics and art, with images from old manuals and dictionaries from the nineteenth century that he collected during his travels. His illustrations, with their being unmistakable, give new life to words, events and characters of other times.

TENOHA &|TASTE: Tsukimi Aperitivo e SUNTORY Whisky tasting

TENOHA Milano offers us two more exciting and tasty appointments with the TSUKIMI APERITIVO and the SUNTORY WHISKY TASTING! Two unmissable appointments to feel in Japan! Let's see what it is about.

TSUKIMI お月見 APERITIVO @ TENOHA Milano

Author: SaiKaiAngel

TENOHA Tsukimi

What is O-Tsukimi? Literally means "to admire the full moon", but it is the feast of the full moon in autumn and is celebrated on the 15th day of the eighth month of the traditional Japanese lunar calendar. It seems that the full moon of the eighth month was the most beautiful of the year, that's why nobles gathered to celebrate and admire the beauty of the full moon, composing music and tanka poetry verses. Today, the Tsukimi is celebrated by offering the moon the famous tsukimi-dango 月見団子, rice cakes whose shape reminds of the full moon and eating "special" dishes, such as tsukimi soba or udon.

At 7 p.m. there will be a unique and unmissable show: Making of MOCHITSUKI (餅つき) , have you ever heard of it? The mochitsuki is the ceremony with which the mochi is prepared. How does it work? The rice, previously soaked and then cooked, is pounded in the traditional large mortar called usu (臼) with a wooden hammer called kine (杵). Usually two people carry out this procedure: the first one beats rhythmically with the kine while the second one turns and moistens the mochi; a great coordination is necessary to carry out this manoeuvre without hindering each other (and without getting hurt). The dough thus obtained is cut and shaped into small spheres. In recent times the mochitsuki ceremony is usually reserved for special events, including the TSUKIMI, known as the Moon Festival, typically represented by the figure of a rabbit stepping on rice in a mortar to prepare the mochi.

TENOHA Milano makes us celebrate autumn just like in Japan!! A special weekend dedicated to the typical flavors of this festival and its curiosities. An appointment not to be missed!

BULK HOMME reminds men the importance of a good skin-care with three phases: washing the face, using toner and lotion.
What makes BULK HOMME products unique is not only the special design and quality of the product itself, but also their texture. Usually we are used to products with a heavy, oily texture that eventually turns out to be unsuitable for our skin, we feel it very suffocating on our face. The texture of BULK HOMME products, instead, is also light thanks to the quality natural ingredients including willow, silk protein, Onsen moisturizing water rich in minerals, Yuzu extracts, green apple and green tea.

Japan History: Saitō Hajime

Saitō Hajime (Yamaguchi Hajime, February 18, 1844 – September 28, 1915) was a Japanese samurai of the late Edo period, who served as the captain of the third unit of the Shinsengumi. He was one of the few core members who survived the numerous wars of the Bakumatsu period. He was later known as Fujita Gorō and worked as a police officer in Tokyo during the Meiji Restoration.

Saitō Hajime

He was born in Edo, Musashi Province (now Tokyo) as Yamaguchi Hajime and he had an older brother named Hiroaki and an older sister named Katsu. According to the published records of his family, Saitō left Edo in 1862, after accidentally killing a hatamoto (a samurai in the direct service of the Tokugawa shogunate of feudal Japan).

He went to Kyoto and taught in the dōjō of a man named Yoshida who had relied on Saitō's father Yūsuke in the past. His style of swordsmanship is not clear. According to a tradition of his descendants, his style comes from Ittō-ryū and to be a Mugai Ryū that originates from Yamaguchi Ittō-ryū. He is also considered to have learned Tsuda Ichi-den-ryū and Sekiguchi-ryū.

He adherently lived by the Shinsengumi code "Aku Soku Zan" ( literally: "Slay Evil Immediately", but more poetically rendered as "Swift Death to Evil"), though he never has shown much regard for human life, at some points even letting on that he likes to kill. He was rather arrogant, but none of these flaws prevent him from being a superb investigator and fighter. He expected those involved in the military, whether Shinsengumi swordsmen or Meiji era policemen, to carry out their duties without letting their personal feelings interfere.

He believed in peace and order, even in the society created by his former enemies. Throughout the series, to uphold this new peace, Saitō has often been shown as the foil of Himura Kenshin who walks and carries out his duties in the shadows of society in his own way; following his lifelong code of purpose with devotion, Saitō was the man who did the dirty work, killing off the bad persons. Anyone he considered to be corrupt or despotic was a target for elimination, in the honor of his country and his fallen men.

Even if he was normally serious, Saitō had a slight sense of humor that is also a lot sadistic, shown as he used his sword to casually attempt to stab Sanosuke Sagara in the butt through the roof of the horse carriage they were riding with Himura Kenshin.

During the Kyoto Arc, Saitō joined forces with Himura Kenshin to fight against Shishio Makoto. However, he considered Kenshin to be more of an adversary rather than an ally. Later, after acknowledging Himura Kenshin’s vow to never kill again, Saitō decided to put an end to their rivalry.

Saitō was an able observer and a quick analyst (working as a spy for the Meiji government). In addition to being a skilled swordsman, he is revealed to possess immense physical strength when he punched the herculean Sagara Sanosuke in a hand-to-hand fistfight. He considered Sanosuke to be a dimwitted amateur with mild potential, due mostly to Sano's lack of insight.

Saitō was highly recognizable by his narrow eyes, "spider-like" strands of hair in front of his forehead (he was also said to resemble a wolf), his propensity for smoking and the katana on his left side.

Shinsengumi Period

As a member of the Shinsengumi, Saitō was said to be an introvert and a mysterious person; a common description of his personality says he " he was not a man predisposed to small talk" but unusually tall 180 cm. He was also noted to be very dignified, especially in his later years, he always made sure that his obi was tied properly and when he walked he was careful not to drag his feet and he always sat in the formal position, called seiza. He also was very alert so that he could react instantly to any situations that might occur.

He was known to be very intimidating when he wanted to be. Along with his duties as Captain of the Third Squad in the Shinsengumi, he was also responsible for weeding out any potential spies within the Shinsengumi ranks.

His original position within the Shinsengumi was assistant vice commander. During the Ikedaya incident on July 8, 1864, Saitō was with Hijikata Toshizō's group that arrived later at the Ikedaya Inn.

In August 20, 1864, Saitō and the rest of the Shinsengumi took part in the Kinmon incident against the Chōshū rebels. In the reorganization of the ranks in November 1864, he was first assigned as the fourth unit's captain and would later receive an award from the shogunate for his part in the Kinmon incident.

At the Shinsengumi new headquarters at Nishi Hongan-ji in April 1865, he was assigned as the third unit's captain. Saitō was considered to be on the same level of swordsmanship as the first troop captain Okita Sōji and the second troop captain Nagakura Shinpachi. In fact, it seems that Okita feared his sword skill.

Despite prior connections to Aizu, his descendants dispute that he served as a spy. His controversial reputation comes from accounts that he executed several corrupt members of the Shinsengumi; however, rumors vary as to his role in the deaths of Tani Sanjūrō in 1866 and Takeda Kanryūsai in 1867. His role as an internal spy for the Shinsengumi is also questionable; he is said to have been instructed to join Itō Kashitarō's splinter group Goryō Eji Kōdai-ji faction, to spy on them, which eventually led to the Aburanokōji incident in December 13, 1867.

Together with the rest of the Shinsengumi, he became a hatamoto in 1867. In late December 1867, Saitō and a group of six members of the Shinsengumi were charged with protecting Miura Kyūtarō, who was one of the main suspects in the murder of Sakamoto Ryōma. On January 1, 1868, they fought against sixteen assassins who tried to kill Miura in revenge at the Tenmaya Inn for what was known as the Tenmaya incident.

After the outbreak of the Boshin war from January 27, 1868 onwards, Saitō, under the name of Yamaguchi Jirō, participated in the Shinsengumi's fight during the battle of Toba-Fushimi and the battle of Kōshū-Katsunuma, before retiring with the surviving members in Edo and later in the domain of Aizu.

Saitō became commander of the Aizu Shinsengumi around May 26, 1868 and continued in the battle of Shirakawa. After the battle of Bonari Pass, when Hijikata decided to withdraw from Aizu, Saitō and a small group of 20 members separated from Hijikata and the rest of the surviving Shinsengumi, continued to fight alongside the Aizu army against the imperial army until the end of the battle of Aizu. This separation was recorded in the diary of the conservative Kuwana Taniguchi Shirōbei, where it was recorded as an event that also involved Ōtori Keisuke, who Hijikata asked to take command of the Shinsengumi; therefore the aforementioned clash was not with Hijikata.

Saitō, together with the few remaining men of the Shinsengumi who went with him, fought against the imperial army at Nyorai-dō), where they were severely outnumbered. It was during the battle of Nyorai-dō that Saitō was thought to have been killed in action; however, he managed to return to the lines of Aizu and joined the army of Aizu's domain as a member of the Suzakutai. After the fall of the Aizuwakamatsu castle, Saitō and the five surviving members joined a group of former Aizu services who traveled southwest to the Takada domain in Echigo province, where they were held as prisoners of war. In the registers listing the Aizu men detained in Takada, Saitō is registered as Ichinose Denpachi.

Meiji Restoration

Saitō, under the new name of Fujita Gorō, went to Tonami, the new domain of the Matsudaira clan of Aizu. He settled with Kurasawa Heijiemon, the karō of Aizu who was an old friend of his from Kyoto. Kurasawa was involved in the migration of Aizu samurai to Tonami and the construction of settlements in Tonami, particularly in the village of Gonohe. In Tonami, Fujita met Shinoda Yaso, daughter of an Aizu believer. The two met through Kurasawa, who then lived with Ueda Shichirō. Kurasawa sponsored the marriage of Fujita and Yaso on August 25, 1871. It was also during this period that Fujita may have been associated with the Police Office. Fujita and Yaso moved out of the Kurasawa house on February 10. When he left Tonami for Tokyo on June 10, 1874, Yaso moved to Tokyo with Kurasawa and the last registration of the Kurasawa family dates back to 1876. It is not known what happened after that. It was during this period that Fujita Gorō started working as a police officer in the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department.

In 1874 Fujita married Takagi Tokio, the daughter of Takagi Kojūrō, a servant of the Aizu domain. Her original name was Sada; she served for a time as a companion of Matsudaira Teru. Fujita and Tokio had three children: Tsutomu (1876-1956); Tsuyoshi (1879-1946); and Tatsuo (1886-1945). Tsutomu and his wife Nishino Midori had seven children; the Fujita family continues to this day through Tarō and Naoko Fujita, the children of Tsutomu's second son, Makoto. Fujita's third son, Tatsuo, was adopted by the Numazawa family, maternal relatives of Tokyo whose family had been almost annihilated during the Boshin war.

Fujita fought on the Meiji government's side during Saigō Takamori's Satsuma rebellion, as a member of the police forces sent to support the Imperial Japanese Army.

During his lifetime, Fujita Gorō shared some of his Shinsengumi experiences with a select few, but he didn’t write anything about his activity in the Shinsengumi as Nagakura Shinpachi did. During his life in the Meiji period, Fujita was the only one who was authorized by the government to carry a katana despite the collapse of the Tokugawa rule. In 1875, Fujita assisted Nagakura Shinpachi (as Sugimura Yoshie) and Matsumoto Ryōjun in setting up a memorial monument known as Grave of Shinsengumi in honor of Kondō Isami, Hijikata Toshizō, and other deceased Shinsengumi members at Itabashi, Tokyo.

Following his retirement from Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department in 1890, Fujita worked as a guard for Tokyo National Museum, and later as a clerk and accountant for Tokyo Women's Normal School from 1899.

Fujita's heavy drinking was believed to have contributed to his death from a stomach ulcer. He died in 1915 at age 72, sitting in seiza in his living room. Upon his will, he was buried at Amidaji, Aizuwakamatsu, Fukushima, Japan.


TENOHA &| WORKSHOP: Kintsugi

Another appointment not to be missed at TENOHA Milano, which returns to propose the Kintsugi workshop, after the great success of the previous edition!

Kintsugi

Another appointment not to be missed at TENOHA Milano, which returns to propose the Kintsugi workshop, after the great success of the previous edition! Mariangela Zabatino from Anima Mundi, with the collaboration of Raffaella Nobili from Japanese Paraventi, will bring you to the calm and the right concentration that only the Kintsugi technique can give.

To refresh your mind, here is what this technique is about: The kintsugi (金継ぎ), or kintsukuroi (金繕い), literally "repair with gold", is a Japanese practice that consists in using gold, liquid silver or lacquer with gold powder for the repair of ceramic objects. The technique allows to obtain precious objects especially from an artistic point of view. The idea is to demonstrate that from imperfection and a wound can arise an even greater form of aesthetic and inner perfection. From every fragment, from every wound something important is born, from every imperfection can arise a new perfection and a new way of living. We must always learn from mistakes and fractures, so that they can never happen again. The art of kintsugi is often used as a symbol and metaphor of resilience.

Kintsugi is an essential experience for body and mind. Do not miss this opportunity and come to understand the true meaning of "rebirth", obviously always here at TENOHA Milano, the real corner of Japan in Italy!

Johanna Tagada Hoffbeck @ TENOHA Milano

TENOHA Milano is proud to present Memories from the Ordinary, the first exhibition in Milan of Johanna Tagada, French artist who lives and works between London and the Alsatian countryside.

MEMORIES FROM THE ORDINARY Johanna Tagada Hoffbeck

Author: SaiKaiAngel

Johanna Tagada Johanna Tagada

Memories from the Ordinary, curated by Giulia Giazzoli and Joel Valabrega, will be at your disposal in the pop-up spaces of TENOHA Milano. The works range from painting to drawing, and from the collage to textile design and… listen!! In the preview, Johanna Tagada will also exhibit two unpublished works from his series Gestures of Love! An appointment not to be missed.

Gestures of Love

According to the artist, life resides in moments of simplicity, of positivity, in a society that never stops to enjoy these beauties.
His work has a great recognizability: the meticulous choice of color palette carefully studied, the selection of materials and textures that often precedes the work. The soft colors, soft shapes and sustainable materials and we are talking about organic cotton fibers, recycled paper and natural colors. Johanna Tagada's idea of ecology finds its foundation in the deep ecology of Arne Naess, Norwegian philosopher and mountaineer who first used the term ecosophy.

Johanna Tagada

Daily-Practice

Let's take a few examples: in the Tea Vessels series, Johanna Tagada depicts objects related to tea culture in a maximum of twenty minutes, exactly the time of a cup of tea. This is an example of how everyday life can be complemented by meditation, which we carry out in all our daily gestures. The theme of memory emerges strongly in the installation Le Refuge (2016). La Refuge is a large cotton tent inside which Johanna Tagada hand embroidered sentences collected from visitors during her project Épistolaire Imaginaire (2014-2017).

Johanna Tagada

Le Refuge

We are talking about a very lively and prolific artist and she has already had a series of solo exhibitions in London, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Strasbourg, in particular:
Strasbourg - Épistolaire Imaginaire - Merci alla Galerie Jean-Francois Kaiser by
Nidi Gallery Tokyo - Take Care - きをつけて.
In 2014 Johanna founded the positive and collaborative cultural project Poetic Pastel. Her continuous research for art also resulted in publishing: in 2018 she co-founded the independent magazine "Journal du Thè" and since 2014 she has been creating "positive and participatory" cultural projects with Poetic Pastel Press. Some of her incredible publications will be on sale in the TENOHA store.

Johanna Tagada Johanna Tagada

To marry everyday life with art, to respect the artist's feelings and to spoil visitors as always, organic teas and infusions will be offered during the exhibition in collaboration with Wilden Herbals Tea.
You cannot miss this opportunity and this unique and sensory experience!
