First impressions.

Dongcun.us is the very first online platform in United States which dedicates itself to share oriental culture and art to public. Our name, “Dong Cun (Chinese: 東村)”, means oriental village. We believe traditional oriental culture is the aesthetics of nature, whereas village is the natural symbol of this very aesthetics. You may consider dongcun.us as an online village with traditional oriental culture and art in the modern society.

 

Core idea.

Enjoying life with oriental culture is our core value.  At times, some people may misunderstand traditional oriental culture, feeling it is mysterious, cold,somewhat otherworldly and is isolated from the modern society. Truth is, traditional oriental culture can make life full of flavor. It matches seamlessly with modern lifestyle, emphasizing nature, health, wellness simplicity and downshifting life. To help more people start to understand the true oriental culture values,we will continue introducingand sharing traditional oriental culture and art with the public, providing you with opportunities to enjoy oriental aesthetics and to understand oriental philosophy in daily life.

Culture opens the sense of beauty.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
