"Iki" is a distinct aesthetic ideal that emerged during the Edo period in Japan, particularly among the merchant classes. It emphasizes the notion of stylishness and sophistication through subtle displays of taste and wealth, aiming to appear chic and refined without overtly showcasing the efforts taken to achieve such elegance.
"Iki" holds significance as a cornerstone of aesthetic appeal and thought in traditional Japanese culture and has had a lasting influence on various aspects, including the development of geisha and kimono traditions, among others. It's important to recognize "ki" as a unique and culturally specific concept, distinct from stereotypical perceptions of Japanese aesthetics often seen in the West.
