Italian photographer in Saronno, deeply in love with Japan, I share my photos (in Japanese shashin) and my experiences in Japan. I love Japanese art, culture, literature, music, tradition, food, people, elegance and mostly, beautiful women.
The chashaku is the teaspoon used in the chanoyu, the Japanese tea ceremony. This one is black laquered with gold decoration of snowflakes. Photo taken with MicroNikkor 105 mm. at full aperture f 3.3, flash reflected onto an umbrella.
