We drink sake from these small bottles and cups. So small that we have to pour each other all the time. It is not really rational, but we like pouring small amount of sake and having actions all the time during the meal. It is fun.
These days, women do not wear kimono. There are many kimono obis, but simply not being used. Sometimes, I use them as a table runner.If you come to Japan, you can find them at the antique shops. Could be nice to place on your table.
Although I love many different kinds of interior and furniture designs, I seem to enjoy simple design more as I age more….. What will happen when I become 85 years old? I may only have a few things in the house, but I will be filled with so many beautiful memories.
I have a tatami room. Sometimes, I put a coffee table on the floor.Then I prepare the table setting. Sitting on a tatami room may be uncomfortable in the beginning, but we can sleep right after we eat and drink! I like to mix Japanese style with western style.
