Tenugui
Tenugui, rectangular cotton gauze cloth used mainly as a towel or headcovering, was one of the most common household items up until a few decades ago when terry cloth towel (which we used to call Seiyo (Western) Tengui) become popular. It is safe to say that we have known no other everyday item that is as handy and versatile as tenugui is. Although everyday use of tenugui dropped significantly, Tenugui remains necessary part of matsuri (festival) costume. People wear them as headbands for absorbing perspiration. Also still today some shop owners and business firms distribute tenugui at their openings or simply as Thank-you gift. Tenugi now has more of symbolic and esthetic values (because of the various graphic designs) rather than practical values. People have found more ways to use it from place mats to tapestry for decorating their homes. How to use this piece of cotton cloth is totally up to you!

"What is your Chinese Zodiac sign?"

This is a common question among Japanese people. I can tell you with almost 100% certainty that every single Japanese person knows what their Chinese zodiac sign is. We have a cycle of 12 years, each of which is represented by an animal. The 12 animals are mouse, cow, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, boar and the order can not be changed. If you were born in 1966, you are a horse and if in 1967, you are sheep etc. The year 2004 is the year of monkey. So the next year will be rooster. Please have a look at the chart at the bottom of this page, if you are curious as to what your sign is.
