Yugen is a Japanese word meaning “a profound awareness of the universe which evokes inner thoughts and feelings that are inexplicably too mysterious for words”*. Everyone may experience the unspeakably deep, stirring, feeling of yugen.
We think it captures the feeling when we travel. When we experience new things. When we see how 6 billion lives interact across seven continents. Visit the Meet the Team section, where your authors reveal the place of their own moments of yugen.
