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

  3. Oh, what a surprise! Thank you for the mention! I love this post! Umeshu is one of my favorite drinks! I always order umeshu when I go to japanese restaurant. I would like to try to make them here but I have never seen green plums at store... maybe in Chinatown...I'll see...

    Have a great weekend! oxoxo
