Kachou Fuugetsu (花鳥風月) is a Japanese concept that means to discover yourself when experiencing nature. Literally, Kachou Fuugetsu means “Flower, Bird, Wind, Moon.” This ancient Japanese philosophy and proverb stems from Fuushi Kaden in the 1400’s. It is considered to be one of the major concepts in Japanese aesthetics and thoughts on beauty and art.
