When a university student struggling with an environmental studies assignment searches for inspiration for an assignment at an art gallery, she is magically transported into a painting and lands in 19th-century Japan. In Edo – today’s Tokyo – she witnesses a range of everyday sustainable practices–using ashes in the dyeing process, fertilizing fields with night soil, repurposing used kimonos into towels and rags–that helped the country overcome environmental collapse.
