The art of Noren

Japan is one of the greatest countries I have been to. Their ability to balance traditions and modernity is outstanding and unique. One of the traditional characteristics one will see around the streets of Japan is Noren. Noren (暖簾) are traditional Japanese fabric dividers, and are used in various ways. Shops and restaurants use them to display their shop name or logo, but also to protect from sun, wind and dust. Inside the restaurant they are used to separate dining areas from the kitchen. Some shops hang them in front of their entrance to signify that they are open, and take them down when they are closed. Commercial bathhouses “Sentō” or some Onsens also attach them across their entrances, blue Noren is for men and red for women.

Noren is not only used commercially. Japanese people hang them up between rooms, on walls, in windows or doorways.

All of my questions seeaktd-thtnls!

1 lod for at følge dig1 lod for landlig indretning: For mig er landlig indretning en lys (hvid) indretning, hvor romantikken er i højsæde, hjemmet må godt ose af hygge og gerne en uhøjtidelig indretning. Fx gamle møbler der bliver sat i stand, mange skønne loppefund, lys, stager, nips, skønne tekstiler, blomster. m.m. Anne Gineved desværre ikke hvordan man linker til sig selv:)så 2 lod til mig:)

: Merci de cette info. Même si effectivement il faudrait croiser avec d’autres sources et vérifier les infos, il se pourrait donc que le prénom Pierre soit antérieur à la formule de Jésus à propos de Simon. Ce conditionnel (très conditionnel quand même) ouvre un champ intéressant. À creuser (bien qu’il ne soit pas aisé de creuser la pierre).

I like how little Mooney has your current haircut and not the pudding bowl job you were sporting as a lad. Excellent Transformer though, but the idea of drawing them in a regular comic boggles the mind.

Lo que hago para varios de mis blogs es que me baso en varios artículos más para poder escribir el mío; se que no es algo completamente original pero tampoco creo que sea un plagio en el sentido estricto de la palabra, pues me estoy informando y redacto mi propia opinión de manera muy distinta. Claro, siempre cito de donde me vino la idea para evitarme problemas. Eso si, cada vez más comienzo a escribir contenido 100% original, pero aún no doy para tanto
