Summer has gone?


Autumn Ohigan (a religious event ) starts from Sept 20th for a week.(Spring has Ohigan too.) And Japanese says "Heat of Summer and Coldness of Winter will go when Ohigan comes.

And as old saying, I feel cold in the 
early morning these days.I decide to put away summer Kimono and Summer Obi.

Spraying and hang them in shades.... fold neatly and put them in a box.

Akinasu (egg plant of Autumn)

Japanese old saying "Do not give Akinasu (Eggplant in Autumn) to your daughter in law" have two meanings we say.





1. Egg plant fruited in Autumn is very delicious. And the mother'n' law do not want to give it to her provoking daughter in law.

or

2. Because Egg plant fruited in Autumn has something wrong with young ladies. I forgot it, but might be cool her body? or something like that. So, the mom in law is taking care of her daughter in law.

Anyway I love egg plant.

Love this vintage shop!


I have just purchased a red clogs from a vintage shop, This and That.
This is great shop, speedy and kind shop.

Very lovely pepper and salt tins. I love these kind of retro too.


Also they have many Japanese vintage things too. I love this trinket box.


Visit and check them!
P.S. I will wear the red clogs with my Kimono of course!

Kokeshi doll


I am believing the most of Japanese girls have some memories with Kokeshi doll.
Might be gifted from her parents? her grandparents? or anyone else. And I'm believing this too that I am not the only one who are scared of Kokeshi.

But anyway I love it now thanks to many of Japanese Kokeshi zakka.

This is my first kokeshi work. I am very happy with this.
