I had a chat this morning when I was out walking with a few local people around where I'm staying. I was explaining why I'm in Arita when one guy said to me, "I'll lend you some design books" and popped into his house and returned with two very delicate looking notebooks filled with drawings - one was Meiji Period and was 136 years old, and the other was 125 years old.
He said, "just put them back in my postbox tomorrow" and I said "I'll definitely knock on your door". Arita is an amazing place!
