How sweet of you to make that bag's from Bryan's post. I will sure let him know! The very same book came in to my library yesterday. I will get my own copy when I go to Japan - Hugs Nat
Having lived in Japan years ago... I can now understand why things were not put on display all the time. So many cultures... so many things to learn. When we moved back to the U.S. our belongings were packed up by a Japanese crew.... and well packed they were. Everything was packed at least twice. All glass objects were packed with paper inside, then rolled in paper, and then again and slid into a cardboard container that was individually separerated. Bet there were all sorts of tree's used in the process! But... we didn't loose anything to breakage. Amazing as it was! Your bag is nice. What are you planning on using it for?
