From its sweeping green valleys spread with vineyards to its ancient churches and watchtowers perched in fantastic Caucasus mountain scenery, Georgia is one of the most beautiful places on earth and one of the countries of the Silk Road at this age-old Eurasian crossroads.
Born in Asahikawa city, Hokkaido, Soufu Honda began calligraphy at the age of two, sitting next to her grandmother, a distinguished Japanese calligrapher and teacher.
