Answer:

Let's think about the subject matter and proceed from there. If I know your school/institution, I can help you access the research databases available to you. Google Scholar is great for STEM subjects if you need something open access. The Internet Archive is also a repository for a variety of excellent sources from books to videos and more. Need help citing a YouTube video or something like a blog? I can guide you to resources for creating the perfect bibliography!

Answer:

The Mingei Movement refers to the period of time during Japan's rapid Westernization and modernization centered around Yanagi Soetsu's call for a stronger appreciation of folk arts in order to preserve traditional Japanese arts and culture. It emphasized valuing "everyday" items and the rustic yet under-appreciated beauty of pieces particularly made by unknown craftsmen.
