Several years ago I got a 2 tatami size hot carpet from a friend, who left Japan. It was sitting here at my place for years, but I never used it. One day I was talking to my friend from Iwate. She mentioned, that her mother was looking for one. So last week I got it out and checked it. As there was still some space in the box I included all the tawashi I got from the lady at my dry cleaner. In a separate box I included scarves, shawls, gloves and socks I still had. Many of the items were wrapped and had personal messages attached. All arrived on time for Christmas Eve.
