Life and Death in Japan
2 days ago
In ancient times, the Chinese emperor was having nightmares of evil chasing after him. Being afraid of evils entering his room at night, he ordered his generals to 見張る miharu stand guard at his doors. Miraculously, he slept well. The next day, he asked the doors to be painted with the picture of the generals, and he slept well every day after that. The generals are called the "Door Gods" that 守る mamoru guard our houses nowadays.
The house itself is an 美術 bijutsu art. Look at the intricate carvings on the walls, on the roof and all around the house.
古代の ancient kodai no quote:
"Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something."
Hi friends, I am back. If you are wondering, I have been in China for a few weeks for business.
Since Chinese New Year is coming, I think I will show you some pictures of China and introduce you to some of the Chinese culture.
A house 家 uchi becomes a home 家 ie when you can write, 'I love you' on the furniture.
