blogging on japan
over the last week there have been some stellar bits and bobs on the www relating to nihon. here i put some of my recent favourite ones.
1. spoon and tamago: do it again. their knowledge of contemporary japanese designers and happenings is amazing. above are two great design concepts. top = canvas works by noto fusai and bottom = suntory's new translucent oolong tea train ad.
2. cookie cutter: shows us some amazing japanese prints on sofa
3. jollygoo: makes umeshu
4. in jo spittler's house by the woods: beautiful, beautiful photos of the rain or shine zines community garden and my very, very favourite busho ikebana (everybody needs this in their life i believe)
5. threebuttons hits tokyo: say no more
6. kansai time out points me to part 2 of kaiten sushi film: lost in a moment
7. and natsumi: has 70s styling in the playground
