*Please access English subtitles through the Closed Captioning (CC) button on the bottom right of the screen

The use of ‘Japan Blue’ pigment (Lapis Lazuli) is deeply intertwined with a number of traditional Japanese art forms, and you’ll find it appearing in various Tokyo 2020 designs and graphics. In this instalment of the One Team Project – an initiative where creators and innovators representing Japan share their visions of Tokyo 2020 with us – Tokyo 2020 emblem designer Asao Tokolo and world-renowned artist Fuyuko Matsui discuss the subtle beauty of Japan Blue, what it symbolises, and how they have integrated it into their creative work.
