Referring to a way of life fundamental to Kyoto culture and nurtured by the city's artisans, the word ''Bifu''' can be translated to ''lovely ways'' or ''beautiful customs.'' The KYOTO BIFU exhibitions at Kyoto Station Building introduce ''Bifu'' in its various forms, both contemporary and traditional. Particularly, they focus on the works of artisans who embody this philosophy and, in turn, have come to represent the Kyoto way of life.
