Furyu refers to the capacity to enjoy beautiful things such as the sight of the full moon on a clear autumn night.
A person who can properly savor things is called furyujin, a person of culture.
The ideograms for furyu mean “flow with the wind” and a true furyujin can express his or her appreciation of traditional Japanese beauty in a seemingly effortless way, as the wind blows.
