Dave - thank you for sharing this. It looks great - I'm gutted to have missed it and yes Piers you had NO EXCUSES!!!

How does one get on the invite list for this in future? I wasn't even aware it was going on. I guess they don't advertise via the INS.

Klaus - you sure get around ;)

Dave - great to finally put a face to the persona.

PS the Hida Gamma Sennin is one of my favourites from that school. Great character and tenderness.

Martyn, this symposium was actually advertised in the last INS journal. Unfortunately we know how late the last journal was for many members.

Ah, yes, I didn't get my journal until I arrived back in Japan on the night of Wednesday 19th March... well, half an excuse is surely better than none, Martyn! :D

Pah - you cheeky sod Piers ;) I know which excuse holds more weight there my friend!

Not sure why I didn't see the invite in the journal but there must be a list or something that individuals get invited with decent advanced notice?

Dave - uncanny similarities to Kyoto - thanks for sharing the wider pictures.

Agreed. It's a wonderful piece of carving and captures both joy and tenderness.

Many thanks for the photos, SC.

Nothing to do with the price of fish, but in case anyone has not noticed, the Hida Takayama Inro Museum has closed down. If you phone the number on the website, you get some unrelated beauty parlor, friendly but clueless.

I notice though that Sagemonoya advertise exhibiting (?) at the Kusakabe Folk Museum in Takayama which is said to hold Netsuke and Inro. I wonder if the collection subsequently moved there when the museum closed? Not much sign of it on their website though.

Maybe contacting Robert or Yukari at Sagemonoya would shed some light.

Alan, I played with that thought this morning and spent some time browsing their website, but finally thought better of it. There used to be a Netsuke on display at the Inro Museum about which I was going to make some queries, but the shot seemed too long.
