Última aula de sumiê de 2014 na Associação Totori

Olá, queridos leitores!
Quero registrar aqui a última aula de sumiê na Associação Cultural Totori, próxima a estação de Metrô Saúde (um dos mais japoneses bairros de São Paulo).
Quero começar expondo o magnífico jardim japonês, na parte do fundo da associação.
Fotos belíssimas que quero compartilhar com vocês.

Hello dear readers!
I want to register my last class of sumi-e painting inside Totori Kenjinkai, near Saúde subway station.
I want to start showing this awesome japanese garden, in the backyard of the association.
Beautiful pictures that I want to share with you.

  1. Awesome indeed - what a beautiful setting for your workshop. Thanks for the lovely pictures.

  2. Hi Sheila!
    Indeed the Totori Kenjinkai (Tottori Cultural Association) is the result of the effort of many along the years. Tottori is the Japan province and people who went from there and their descendents constructed the building where this beautiful Japanese garden stands and the salon where we do the classes. It is one of the most features of japanese immigrants I admire more: the capability of association and the perseverance to build lovely things and preserve the culture.
    Thanks for commenting!

  3. Thanks for the additional information. Yes, the Japanese are quite amazing. They do not even have to be an immigrant in a country to share their beautiful culture - there are many cities in the U.S. who have Japanese "sister" cities. The most common kind of exchange is often their building of gardens or planting of trees. There is one such garden in the nearest big city to me. I haven't been there in years but your pictures are encouraging me to see it again.

  4. Hi Lucia, what a beautiful garden! thanks for sharing your photos and happy new year!!

  5. Dear Leah!
