The Will to Beauty.(this is a reference to Nietzche's "The Will to Power" - it is good because it suggests that Okakura was very stubborn and the period is the same for Nietzche. This would be catchy for a foreign audience. )

This is a story of Tenshin's life and conflict and teacher-student love between Tenshin, who rediscovered art of Japan and tried to produce new beauty in Meiji period, and his young pupils, Taikan Yokoyama, Shunsou Hishida, Kanzan Shimomura, Buzan Kimura.
