it's officially rainy season here in kyoto. note the maiko in gion, the rain guards on the geta [sandals] and the shinto priest in the rickshaw in the rain.

ikebana tools

exquisite, hand made ikebana [flower arranging] and gardening tools.

uses for roof tiles

i love the way old roof tiles are used in walls and garden paths.

macha plate

saw this desert displayed in a restaurant window. macha tea was used to make the shadow of the forks.
