Default Re: Damascening with a hammer and punch in Japan

Barry, thanks for posting the photos.
Do you have any information about the shop/workshop? Like shop's name or location? Any other place you have visit for seeing the oriental engraving stuff?
I may go to Kyoto there next year.

Did you try having dinner at the Riveside restaurant and the traditional Japanese dancing women (I mean enjoy their traditional dancing.)

Today (Sept 14) they have a festival at From 18:00 Hirano-jinja Shrine, about 800 lanterns will be lit and a wide range of traditional entertainments (noh poetry reading dance etc.) will be performed.

Enjoy your trip and look forwards to see more of your photos.
