With development of art and design, the formation of aesthetic character is not only influenced by regional culture, but also formed by education of aesthetics, art and design. The spirit of absorbing diverse culture and breaking the limit of regional boundary and absorbs, gives birth to the communication and practice of cultural giants from various countries from East Asia, including the visit of Chaoheng (Abe no Nakamaro) who was an envoy of Japan to visit China and six visits of Jianzhen to eastern world.

The exhibition shows works of various research fields of Tokyo Zokei University, which covers art and design, such as dying, weaving, ceramics, sculpture installation, drawing animation, book decoration, industrial design and graphic design. We can find that the works preserve eastern aesthetics interest as well as explore the application of western mathematical order. It not only contains thoughts about individual life, but also all kinds of abstract expression of the modern life. It displays book decoration design about reflection on earthquake, and industrial design product concerning living quality of the aged people. These are more than value of aesthetics. They include a kind of concern, which is shown in daily life. With the connection and communication between human and object, it shows the national characters and culture of Japan.
