Happy New Year, Tenugui Fans!!!!

I am so excited for Welcome Year 2015, so I was celebrated New Year with my dear Kimono friends at Fabio Cucina in my special Kimono.

You may know which one is me? I am on right in yellow Kimono. My Kimono is my mother’s, and my obi (belt) is my grandma’s. And then, I love using Tenugui as a Kimono collar, can you see my yellow Kanoko tenugui around my kimono neck? Here you go, Three generation Kimono coordinate!

Wish you all the best of 2015, and let’s enjoy wonderful year and Tenugui with me this year also!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Are you ready for Welcome year 2013?

Thank you very much for your love of Tenugui all year around. I love tenugui very much, … well as you know :-)
This simple rectangular 100% cotton cloth has unlimited possibilities, to design, to use… and each piece has a beautiful story behind it. We can feel changing season, warming holidays, bitter sweet memories… through Tenugui.

Many unexpected things had happened year 2012, many people died… lost their home, family, and friends… because of nature disaster, or human involved…. Many people are struggling to have foods and comforts in the many places. I am hoping that each one of us, will appreciate what we have in our hands, and sharing and giving what we have, and respect one’s life each other.

I always have my favorite tenugui in my hands, to wiping my happy and sad tears… Tenugui always gives me a warm comfort. Me and Tenugui are always together, for coming new year 2013 as well!
Wishing you a Happy New Year, and hoping you have your favorite tenugui in your hands on your good days and bad days, and please remember that? I am thinking about you, and wishing your happiness as always.

Happy New Year, Tenugui Fans!

Tenugui mumbling Vol.55 – Hatsuyume (First dream)

standing same place on New Year Eve

standing same place on New Year's Eve

On the morning of New Year’s Eve, I was standing at my usual place at the subway station to go to work. I looked at the other side of the platform, and I found a homeless guy was bundled up in his blankets, and peacefully sleeping. I hadn’t seen him for a long time, and I remembered that he was not there last New Year’s eve. I got a strange warm feeling in my heart as soon I knew he was there, and in his place.

I have met so many great people this year through my Tenugui. They support me, and tell me the stories of their life. The words they give to me, I always cherish, and they bring me good spirits, and send me hope and light. Many?wuhao friends send me messages and compliments everyday, which give me a confidence to continue in my own life.

In Japan, If you have a dream about Mt. Fuji, Hawks, or eggplants on the first night of the new year, you will have a blessed year. For me, dreaming about waking up on a Tenugui field filled with love and energy, makes me feel blessed…

Happy New Year to all!
Wish you all have a great year 2010, be loved and love….

and Peace…
