I just wanted to post this picture of a Japanese shoppe I found in Paris.  I believe it was in the Latin Quarter.  It was a lovely shoppe, full of luscious origami paper, wooden geta, stiff cotton noren, bamboo chopsticks, and a hundred little hair ornaments.  I wish I had the whole name of the place, but I have to say they win the prize for the cutest sign.  It drew me straight in to their door!  Ah, the power of cute!
