Re: Mis-spelling on hakama
Oh, and on a tangential note...
Years ago people kept telling me I should have a Japanese "art name" for my sword polishing/mounting business. You know, some really cool, samurai-esque, sharp object related nifty lookin' kanji to toss around. I got tired of hearing it and named my business
Why? When I was a kid my mom used to joke that I vanished all day during the summer. I was her summer-child. Years later I married a lovely woman who is of Japanese descent. It turned out her name, Natsuko, literally meant summerchild.
I always thought that was a kind of cool coincidence. So I named the business summerchild polishing.
And I used the kanji for her name as my graphic as a sort of inside joke wondering how many of those people who thought it was so important I have some cool kanji on my site would notice.
And I waited for someone to say something (because it is a girl's name after all).
Nobody said a word for many, many years...
It just seemed vaguely related...
