  • Ii dono! Greetings from Solveig! Do we have a better source than Sengoku Daimyo? I tried to look up "kai awase" in Kodansha Kogojiten and all i could find is an entry for “kahi ohohi” which appears to only date from the time of Basho. That said, the Japanese Wikipedia entry also claims that kai awase dates to the Heian period, but it does not appear to cite any sources. I...

  • Noble Cousin! Greetings from Solveig! Folks should probably also be checking out the Costume History of Japan at the Costume for inspiration; http://www.iz2.or.jp/english/ The history is organized by period. The Edo period and the Meiji period are both post-period. Note that modern kimono are not particularly more period than a tuxedo is. There was a lot of fashion evolution during...

  • Noble Cousin! Greetings from Solveig! There was a daimyo (ca 1550) named 小西 Konishi so offhand I think that the proposed name 小西月子 Konishi Tsukiko can be documented. Your Humble Servant Solveig Throndardottir Amateur Scholar

  • Noble Cousin! Greetings from Solveig! Professor Kominz at Portland State University teaches kyogen, and I'm hoping we can get him and a couple of his students to come and perform during dinner. I would love to have sources for the feast - Baron Refr in Dragon's Mist will be the feast-crat. He lived in Japan for a time and loves the culture. I urge you to schedule the kyogen for...

  • Noble Cousin! Greetings from Solveig! So you are one of Margie Yap’s students. As I recall, I have corresponded with her in the past. Regardless, we both belong to electronic tea forums. I am rather fond of kyogen. Kyogen plays often have small casts with as few as 2 actors. Kyogen plays can also be rather short, so you might even have a couple of plays. Are you contemplating a...

  • Noble Cousin! Greetings from Solveig! I agree that more information might be helpful. There are a variety of festivals available throughout the year which might be of interest. Although it is a bit late, I would suggest that you engage in Moon Viewing. Ohanimi really is a springtime thing. Out of curiosity, where are you located? Maybe Snow Viewing would be more appropriate. Your...

  • Noble Cousins! Greetings from Solveig! Unfortunately, an IAP is useful for overcoming style rules such as color-on-color. I strongly suspect that what is needed is to demonstrate some knowledge of gingko trees by Europeans prior to 1601. There are prominent people in the College of Arms who can be quite adamant about such things. Has anyone here read the rather sizable book about...

  • Noble Cousin! Greetings from Solveig! Am I missing something? I do not see a link to the documentation which you appear to want folks to take a look at. Your Humble Servant Solveig Throndardottir Amateur Scholar

  • Noble Cousins! Greetings from Solveig! You can order a new copy from Amazon Japan for 5,400 yen + shipping. There is apparently a new third edition published in May this year. If you have a local Japanese bookstore, you might be able to save on shipping. My experiences with Kinokuniya suggest that Amazon will be the cheaper option.
