今日の収穫!Some more additions!


I got some additional items for my vacation rental house, Miyagawa Komachi, today. One is an old traditional Japanese umbrella which were/are used by Geisha, Maiko, or people who wear Kimono. I am going to put this umbrella at the entrance.  The other one is called Cesar which protect people/house from evil. This Cesar are actually from Okinawa. I think that I am going to put this little cute one near the front entrance to protect my home from bad sprit. In Kyoto, we have similar little statue called "Shoki-san" which protects a home from bad spirit as well.....
A small Cesar to protect home from bad spirit. I will keep his cute dragon like statue at the entrance of Miyagawa Komachi, vacation rental home in Kyoto Japan. シーザーはショウキさんと同じ厄除けの役割を果たしますので、玄関で見守っていただきましょう。

An umbrella that traditionally made by a specialist.
It is made of bamboo and rice paper. Geisha and Maiko use this when it rains.
