Almost Everyday



The best planner I have seen yet, the Hobonichi which translates to "almost everyday" is used as a daily planner, a sketchbook and general notebook. All sorts of tasty details from flexible time slots, monthly and daily views, even birds of the world! Produced by Arts and Science, picked up at Papier Labo, Tokyo (this place has all the best notebooks). Looks like 2013 will be a punctual year.

A Few From Kagoshima


Just a few images from our recent trip to Kagoshima Japan including Sakurajima, and active volcano that erupts an average of 3 times a day, our apartment in Kagoshima City, the Observatory high above the city, the view of Sakurajima from Play Mountain and Good Neighbors along with an exhibition by Akio Nakuga, and a climbing kiln from a 400 year old pottery.

More to come from the trip
