There was this wonderful looking kama in my room at the hotel we were staying (no, we were not in Japan)
But some people decided to use it as a candle holder
Which is really quite unfortunate, because the kama itself is rather nice. I, for one, won’t mind having one, although the ones shaped like these are almost impossible to use for my kind of tea making. Subsitute it for a tetsubin though….. oh, the endless possibilities.
