Tenugui mumbling Vol. 114 – Valentine’s day or Fundoshi Day?

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and Fundoshi Day!

Valentines Day or Fundoshi Day?

I found this photo on Facebook, and I LOVE IT!!!!!!! It said; ” February 14th, Valentine’s and Fundoshi Day – Relationship and Fundoshi can make a knot many times. ”

Do you know about Fundoshi? Fundoshi is a Japanese traditional underwear that has a very long history. The shape of Fundoshiis a vertical Tenugui with a long string attached on it. You can use string to tie Fundoshi around your waist, and the Tenugui portion comes around between your legs. See the photo of Tenugui Fundoshi master Ringmaster Yoshi (Tokyo Circus) here!

Ringmaster Yoshi - Tokyo Circus!

Ringmaster Yoshi - Tokyo Circus!

So now, I think I can think of this quote in two different ways;

1. When your Fundoshi get looser, you can tie up(or fix) tightly anytime, so does your old relationship.

2. Fundoshi can tie many times, so does making new relationship with someone always.

Well… how do you think?
Let’s give a nicely tight hug to your sweetheart tomorrow, and show her/him your true love!
Or hug yourself nicely for Thank you being ME :-)

Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day, Tenugui Fans \(*v*)/
We love you always!!!!!!

Tenugui mumbling Vol.86 – Smile to the Wold – The Tokyo Circus

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

I met Yoshi at the Japanese Street Festival in New York. Since then, I am a big fan of Yoshi and the Tokyo Circus.

The Tokyo Circus?is an international performance group led by Yoshi. They perform on the street,?or clubs and events, sending positive messages to?strangers. They believe that a “smile” will bring?happiness and peace under any circumstance. Their very simple philosophy touched my heart very deeply.?I?realized that we had a common dream, namely, “to make people smile and happy,”? Yoshi by?an innocent performance, me by a?simple rectangular cloth, Tenugui.?” – from Tenugui mumbling Vol.84 First laugh of the Year

Please?check The Tokyo Circus official site for more movies and stories about them.

The theme of this clip: “Life is a Circus” and “Live with your Passion”
