Spring is in full swing, and sakura season has begun! The trees are all turning lovely shades of pink and white, and the weather is the perfect temperature to go out and enjoy a nice picnic meal under the falling petals. While you’re enjoying the flowers and food, why don’t you also enjoy the latest issue of CONNECT? This month read about the various cultural responses to the 3.11 disaster, revisit the amazing costume designs of Ishioka Eiko, learn about the struggles of homelessness in Tokyo, and much more! And don’t forget… CALLING ALL ARTISTS! Do you like to paint, draw, write, take photos, or do any other form of art out there? The AJET CONNECT art issue is on its way and is looking for submissions! For more information about submission requirements and how to submit, please check out our tumblr at c-theartissue.tumblr.com.
