This article focuses on the belief of Yoichiro Kurata, CEO of Shinwa Art Auction, Japan's leading art auction house, that Japanese art is on the cusp of a renaissance. One reason is that foreign collectors are rediscovering Japanese art. Art dealers in New York and London call him in Tokyo regularly to quiz him about the local market. Bolstering his confidence is a recent gain in the value of land in cities such as Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya.
