paper bento from hello sandwich

the talented graphic designer hello sandwich has created this lovely paper bento for japan vogue.

you can download the pattern (in japanese) here:


after a few weeks away, i am back in japan, and can't wait to eat yummy japanese food (not the paper kind!)

i'm going to be posting a little less frequently, as i will be busy with the disaster recovery (my first 2 day jobs are related to disaster recovery research), but i will be here!


takayama woodblock prints

i took a few days trip at the end of 2007 to gifu prefecture. i saw this store in takayama, that sells woodblock prints, mostly that have been made into paper trays.
the store is in a traditional shop house, which made it even nicer.
they also made these lovely stuffed animals (for all the zodiac years-2008 is the year of the mouse) from block printed fabric.
