Cat M.

My parents' cat M. loves to lie down on her back when the weather gets hot. She always lies down with my dad in the same pose and probably found it is fun to do it by herself. She also has a fetish for being scratched by a handcrafted broom by me. By me!

My mom's green tea roll cake

My mom told me that she will bake something for me. It was a little hot day, so I asked her to bake strong green tea roll cake. My mom is the best!
I bought her new baking book written by a famous chef at AU BON VIEUX TEMPS in Tokyo as a thank you gift. So she can enjoy more baking and we can enjoy more eating.:)

Chogoro brooches

My mom asked me to make simple tea cups for wooden tea saucers with Raden decoration hand crafted by Yushiro Kojima.
Yushiro Kojima's wife and daughter, Miyoko&Sawako also make raden accessories. Traditional, but modern and interesting. You can check more items at Chogoro.
