      That can be difficult. I'd say come on and play with us over here, but
      'the pond' is a bit difficult to get across just to play Japanese.

      Hmmm, that event sounds like a challenge. Is that the actual name of the
      event (I couldn't find it on the site).

      I know that one of our local Horde members, Pao Hu Tso, is trying to
      organize a 10th C. Chinese archery ritual. Also just finished reading
      about an archery ceremony in Heian period where the winners would get
      rewards from betting, and losers were apparently made to take a
      'punishment drink' (BATSU + SAKE).

      I'd be interested in the Japanese tea house. My first attempt failed,
      miserably (well, I kept dry! and off the ground! so maybe it just
      failed--or was miserable--and not entirely both). I am thinking that the
      house-on-a-trailer may be the way to go when I get back to that project.

      If you planned to use the Hideyoshi portable Tea House, and have the book
      "Japan's Golden Age: Momoyama" then I have one suggestion: turn the book
      upside down, first (yes, someone did go ahead and put the picture in
      upside down. Another good one for folks who like these kinds of things:
      the samurai on the cover of "Samurai: An Illustrated History" is wearing
      his sode on the wrong sides! You can tell because of where the furniture
      sits on them.)

      Well, we can help you with that, Klaus-dono. What are you looking for?

I am in search of help to locate writing on how to produce historically accurate images. From everything from the type of paper and ink, to how to make a seal, what is used as the red ink? for the seal, symbolism, etc.
