Nara: visiting a Sumi artisan, Inkan craftsman, and having Tea

Some photos of our visit with a Sumi-ink artisan


At the oldest Sumi-ink producer in Nara.  They have been making Sumi for 400 years.


 A Shinto purification ceremony… A nice surprise


A visit with a Inkan craftsman


Then lunch and tea at a beautiful temple.  That was a sweet with tea.

Clipping hedges that were already perfect. The temple gardens were gorgeous.
