Japanese Culture

This group has become officially dormant. It happens. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic see this page.

For those who appreciate Japanese culture, arts, and language. If you'd like to swap information on books about Japan, please do!

My own enthusiasms include the Way of Tea (a.k.a. Chanoyu or "tea ceremony"), kimono, incense, tetsubin collecting, Japanese design, and language study - but all interests are welcome. Please pull up a zabuton and share what you love about Japan.

By the way, I'm accepting nominations for a better picture! I'm using this one for now because I actually took the photo (therefore, no copyright issues). If anyone would like to suggest something else, I'm all mimi.
