YuGen, according to Urban Dictionary, is simply explained as “The principle of Yugen
shows that real beauty exists when, through its suggestiveness, only a few words, or few brush strokes, can suggest what has not been said or shown, and hence awaken many inner thoughts and feelings.” One of its characteristics is also that it exists in a more spiritual level as it is a concept surrounded with peace and quiet. Works of YuGen should be visually as simple as possible, but at the same time be full of emotion and thought. Audience should see past what is shown and think about what is not. One example of YuGen would be a very famous quote by a well known Japanese writer from the Meiji period named Natsume Soseki(夏目漱石). He is known by the phrase “The moon is beautiful” with the deeper meaning of “I love you” without saying it directly.
