  • Sakata Kaido-Maru Wrestling the Giant Carp (1836)

Available from $33 on our website --> https://bit.ly/2Cp47iP (shop link in bio)

The mighty Kaido-maru grapples with the thrashing carp in a waterfall, as water sprays and crashes around them. 
This is an exquisite piece by Kuniyoshi. His unique approach to portraying water is suggestive of a starry night’s sky, giving the scene its enchanting aura. Take a look at the subtle detailing of the carp: the translucency of its fin and directional movement of its scales. Kuniyoshi depicts the creature as delicate and dangerous, showing his mastery in creating complex characters.

The character of Sakata Kaido-maru is based on the Japanese folk hero ‘Kintarō’. His name translates to mean “golden boy”, although he’s usually portrayed in a pink-red color rather than gold. He’s a child with superhuman strength who holds many animal-like powers. Born in the mountains, Kintarō was orphaned and raised by a Yamauba - a mountain witch - who was known for eating children. Despite her terrible ways, the Yamauba decided to raise Kintarō as her own.

Kintarō grew in strength as he did in age, so by the age of eight was able to break tree trunks as if they were twigs. As he was raised in the forests, he befriended animals and soon learned how to communicate with them. Often he wrestled them for sport to develop his fighting skills.

Kintarō wraps his arms around a giant carp, holding it firmly as the Bishamon waterfall pounds down on them. Waterfalls were a common symbol of religion and the supernatural, believed to be the homes of deities and spirits. Many still have dedicated shrines. The character of Kintarō is also still celebrated, usually on ‘Children’s Day’, as he’s believed to bring strength and perseverance.

🌸 ¡Hola! Gracias por vuestra paciencia💕 seguimos con el segundo diorama de la colección de Halloween😚

Se trata de una colección de edición limitada llamada 🎃'Halloween yokai'🎃
En ella, encontraréis 3 dioramas únicos, cada uno representando a uno o varios yokais en una escena.
.
🧧¿Qué es un yōkai? son monstruos, demonios y seres sobrenaturales representados en el folclore asiático.
.
Sigue leyendo para conocer más detalles sobre este yōkai ⤵️
.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
.
Este es el primer diorama de la colección, en él podemos encontrar:
.
🌿 🌿  Kappa 🌿 🌿
.
Son reptiles con forma humanoide que habitan en río y arroyos de todo Japón. Son torpes en tierra y excelentes nadadores. A pesar de su pequeño tamaño, son físicamente más fuerte que un hombre adulto.
.
Poseen una hendidura con agua encima del cráneo, su fuente de poder, y siempre debe estar húmeda. Si se vacía, puede desmayarse e incluso morir.
.
Son seres solitarios, aunque pueden hacerse amigos de otros kappas e incluso humanos, pero no hay que bajar la guardia, pues pueden devorarte.
.
Su método de ataque es ahogar o morder a su oponente hasta la muerte bajo el agua. Sin embargo, si te encuentras con un kappa en tierra, es posible burlarlo y huir. Son yokais muy educados, de modo que si le haces una reverencia en forma de saludo, el kappa se verá obligado a devolverte la reverencia, vaciando así el agua de su cráneo y desmayándose.
.
Por suerte, hay un alimento en especial que aman por encima de la carne humana: el pepino. Así que no es raro encontrar en ciertas regiones de Japón ofrendas de pepino en la orilla de los ríos, para así evitar ser devorados.
.

  • 🇯🇵🇨🇳 L'opera "Quan Tangshi" 全 唐诗 - "Raccolta completa delle poesie Tang", rivela l'influenza delle prostitute sulla cultura della Dinastia Tang. Delle 49.000 poesie, oltre 4.000 sono legate alle prostitute e 136 furono scritte da prostitute stesse. La proliferazione della prostituzione durante la Dinastia Tang fu probabilmente dovuta alla fondazione di una nuova amministrazione governativa chiamata "jiaofang" (教 坊 = "laboratorio didattico"), una scuola di fascia alta per ragazze. Esse venivano istruite nella musica e nella danza, nonché nella letteratura, nella poesia, nella calligrafia e in una serie di altri tipi di intrattenimento di alto livello. Il sistema jiaofang durò diversi secoli, almeno fino alla metà della Dinastia Qing (1616-1911). Le prostitute addestrate nel jiaofang venivano chiamate "prostitute ufficiali" e fornivano intrattenimento sia a funzionari di corte che a studiosi. Sebbene una yiji potesse in determinati casi scegliere di avere rapporti sessuali con il proprio cliente, ciò non faceva parte della sua professione ufficiale, ed in genere non era una scelta consigliabile poichè avrebbe perso il suo valore. Il rapporto sessuale avveniva comunque dietro il previo consenso della prostituta e solitamente con un solo uomo. Dopo la fondazione della Dinastia Qing (1644-1911), tuttavia, alle yiji fu vietato l'impiego da parte dello Stato; ciò le rese dipendenti dal patrocinio dei clienti privati, che portò queste donne a vendere il proprio corpo in cambio di denaro, e quindi allo sviluppo della professione della prostituzione vera e propria.

  • On this snow day, we thought we would acknowledge something we don't currently see but is very much alive. In Japanese culture, the Iris flower is revered for its purifying properties. A common iris definition includes the idea of purifying evil energies and protecting those who wear it. The Iris flower is a common symbol found in kimono fabrics, as well as in Japanese paintings.
. 
Keep yourself warm today, both inside and out.

  • Hi guys, on behalf of Kenjutsu World, I'd like to let the world know, especially those working in Facebook to know that their Facebook was hacked. The hackers transferred the account rights to another user and banned the original Kenjutsu World account owner from using it. The hackers then posted inappropriate content on the account causing Facebook to shut down the account for good.

As some of you know, kenjustu is one part of Japanese culture I support fully and have a heart for. I even practice some of it independently at home. I ask that you guys help me to help Kenjutsu World to restore the account by sharing their story.

I have followed them for some time and have scene all the wonderful footage of different styles of Japanese fencing. I have seen a lot and learned quite a fair bit from the things shared. I invite any kindhearted soul to help me support Kenjutsu World and to help restore their innocence. Just share this story and hashtag #kenjutsuworldisinnocent and #kenjutsuworldwashackedonfacebook.

  • Pillole dal Giappone 🎌Inemuri, l'arte di dormire 💤
Avrete sicuramente visto, in qualche film o documentario, dei giapponesi intenti a dormire seduti sui sediolini della metropolitana.
Benché possa sembrare buffo a noi occidentali, per i giapponesi non è una pratica per nulla disdicevole ed è molto frequente tra i salaryman e gli studenti.
Quello che a noi sembra un sonnellino bello e buono, in giapponese si definisce inemuri, che letteralmente vuol dire "dormire ma essere vigili", data la tendenza dei giapponesi a lasciarsi cadere nelle braccia di Morfeo sui mezzi pubblici ma anche a lavoro o nel bel mezzo di una conferenza.
Ma un giapponese che fa inemuri non verrà mai visto in malo modo...ANZI! Addormentarsi in un luogo pubblico sottolinea che la persona si è dedicata anima e corpo al proprio lavoro o ai propri studi ed è giunto al limite pur di portare a termine il suo dovere.
Non è dunque un sonnellino, è un momento che i giapponesi dedicano a sè stessi dopo ore ed ore di sforzi lavorativi.
Quindi, se vi viene rimproverato di esservi addormentati a lavoro o durante una lezione, rispondete che non era un sonnellino ma l'inemuri, il riposo dei leoni!
Un saluto. S.

  • This is the earliest female novelist that you have probably never heard of if you are not Japanese. She is known as Lady Murasaki after the main female protagonist in her novel as, despite her huge fame and the fact that we also have her diary, her real name is lost to posterity. She was a noblewoman in the 11th Century Imperial court and is depicted according to the beauty standards of the day. This means a round face, copious layers of clothing, shaved eyebrows with feathery replacements painted on much higher up, and she would have blackened her teeth. Her epic novel The Tale of Genji is an absolutely fascinating insight into the world she lived in. It was a life of colours, perfumes, music and witty poems. Her class led such a cultured aesthetic life that they left the mundane business of government to others(who eventually rose up to supplant them!) I've shown her at work with her wispy words spiralling out in a highly anachronistic incipient Japanese flag. Her fascinating diaries might be a good place to start as Genji is a huge novel, but I recommend both and still can't quite process just how old they are. Her characters are very real and yet are over 1000 years old.

  • 🔥🔥🔥 AS IF a popup weren't enough, I also have MIKE "Ramen_Lord" SATINOVER hosting a 1-night-only RAMEN INTENSIVE CLASS on Tuesday, November 19th starting at 7:00PM!!! •

    CLASS kicks-off with a hot, welcoming bowl of Mike's NEW WAVE SHOYU!!! Can't wait to see everyone there!!!!!


    Here are details from Mike:

    TICKETS LIVE NOW. LINK IN BIO.

    As part of the Anime NYC ramen panel I’ll be doing, we thought it’d be fun to host a post-panel popup and class. The gracious @shuya_cafe_de_ramen has agreed to host us, and it’s gonna be a banger.

    FOR THE POPUP: choose from the Akahoshi Miso, the New Wave Shoyu, and a special Collab Shio bowl with Shuya himself, fish and chicken broth, seafood glory. A true combination of Shuya and my approaches to ramen. •

    FOR THE CLASS: I’ll be speaking on all things ramen, from the mysteries of tare, to how noodles are made. Everyone who attends gets a free bowl of New Wave Shoyu ramen. •

    Limited 100-seats for the popup, 25-seats for the class.
