my little japan in Paris : Guimet Musuem, part two

I've been meaning to write this post for days but I've kept myself busy elsewhere & couldn't. I want to thank you ALL for your ammazing response to my previous post. I haven't painted since then, but it's definitely in a corner of my mind & will try to make time for it often.

Today's the last post in the series "My Little Japan in Paris", about our two-day trip to Paris, a month ago. Today it will be about the rest of what you could see in the Japanese departement of the Guimet Museum.
