So these are great links, You will find calligraphy
with lots of information. There is even a woman who will
translate names(I don't know about a fee). Also in thinking of sake
and tea, there are many forms of the vessals. Many are traditional,
they use earth tones. Much of what is made is also made with natural
resources as opposed to man made. They sometimes have indentations
where the palm of the hands hold on to it. Also there are generally
4 small cups(no handles). I wish I could remember, but I knew a guy
when I lived there who was learning Japanese and martial arts,he was
a graduate student at Wash. U. There's got to be places there to
so here goes:
scroll down to bottom of page and click on oriental sights
scroll down to explanation of writing or click onto left side panel
of Jap. writing and calligraphy.
scroll down to your name in calligraphy.
oriental sights for Art and Social studies content.
This is the oriental institute-click pottery or scroll down.
darn I can't find how I got to the writing area because my web won't
go through, however it derived from here. If you ever go to Chicago
I know of a Japanese mall you will love!(yes a mall)
or after that add: (category/cult.html)and scroll around
