Japan Boro Vintage | Japanophilla Boutique

Made in old Japan

Caught in action


Japanese have a curiosity for foreigners that have a curiosity for them. There are many programs on TV about foreigners in Japan, especially those who speak or write Japanese exceptionally well or have mastered a traditional Japanese art. 
This is the third time I was filmed by a TV crew buying antiques. They were like: "A retro sign that says 'Do not smoke' - what the heck do you want with this old junk?" The shop owner, also Japanese, looked slightly upset at the cameraman. I kind of just wanted to get on with my shopping as the place was about to close.
