"Of the three great masters of modern architecture, F.L. Wright has the deepest connection to Japan. In addition to the second-generation main building of the Imperial Hotel, which celebrated its 100th anniversary this fall, buildings such as the Yamamura Tazaemon Residence (currently Yodokou Guest House) and Jiyu Gakuen Myokokan still exist. He is also an avid collector of ukiyo-e paintings by artists such as Katsushika Hokusai and Utagawa Hiroshige, and has preserved a number of buildings designed by Arata Endo, one of his leading disciples in Japan. Japanese architect Tsuyoshi Tane will inherit Wright's will as the design architect for the new main building of the Imperial Hotel Tokyo. The Toyota Municipal Museum of Art will also hold a ``Frank Lloyd Wright'' exhibition for the first time in Japan in 26 years. Therefore, this magazine's first special feature on F.L. Wright in 22 years focuses on its relationship with Japan!"
