Re: [BKARTS] Japan visit



Matt:

Kurotani is a delightful place to see. They always encourage interested
visitors. In Tokyo there is a paper museum you could ask about. Also in
Tokyo there is Periodica Japonica, Hongo 5-29-13, Bunkyo Ku. I've sold them
my miniature books for many years now. It's a fascinating place.
