All that lush tea isn't TECHNICALLY a pattern, but it's making us think in matsuri (festival) type ways.

UCHIKAKE the Another Wedding Kimono. This beautiful UCHUKAKE is usually brocaded or embroidered with the motif of congratulations such as cranes, pines, and a bounty of flowers. It is believed that UCHIKAKE started to be worn by the high-class samurai family women in the Muromachi era (1336–1573). During the Edo era (1603–1868), UCHIKAKE became a more common kimono for the high-class women like the oiran in Yoshiwara, and since then it has been recognized as a wedding kimono.


These were a favorite gift of our family and friends back in the US ... From hand blown glass to cast brass, the sound of one or many stirs up such fond memories. One special chime adorns the drawer pull of an end table - the brass samurai helmet is the perfect height for our Sheltie, Miko, to ring. Just below is a shrine to her brother, Kota, who passed in 2011. Miko often rings the bell and sits/lays with a toy for a moment as if paying homage. Tis sad, but a beautiful tribute! Miss you…
