four november giveaways!
By Patricia Belyea
This month Okan Arts is giving away a copy of maido: A gaijin’s guide to Japanese gestures and culture and two yards of bright yukata cotton. There are four giveaways, each valued at $45.
maido, written by Christy Colón Hasegawa and published by Schiffer, describes the most common Japanese gestures and defines their meanings and cultural context. Whether you’re an armchair traveler or heading to the Tokyo Quilt Festival in January, this book is designed to help you navigate in the Land of the Rising Sun.
Here are a few terms that are described in maido:
The two yards of fabric, vintage printed yukata cotton from Japan, glow with happiness and sakura blossoms on checkerboard backgrounds.
