The 12 Best uncharacteristically Accounts to Follow on Twitter
On our last trip to New York City, we found ourselves in an antique store browsing the wares for a couple of hours. While we were there that afternoon, we came across a large display of antiques and found ourselves drawn to a pair of boxes.
These boxes were made from a hard, wooden plank, and they had been carefully wrapped in a cloth so that the plank stood up straight and looked like a solid piece of wood.
Yes, we had seen them before, but somehow none of us could remember what they were called. We eventually settled on The Bamboo Boxes, and asked one of the vendors for a small sample. He handed us a piece of the plank, but in all honesty I still don’t know what it was.
The Bamboo Boxes had a special meaning for us. We’d discovered a pair of them in an antique store that belonged to a family who had a lot of bamboo. In fact, they were one of the things that had been sent to the family’s home for Christmas. The family had been trying to decide what to do with the bamboo, and the boxes had become a symbol.
We had an idea of what they were and then after discovering they were uncharacteristically, I started to really think about them. I think they were supposed to be like a small gift box with a small piece of bamboo in it. I didn’t know what they were though, I just thought they were cute-looking things to carry around.
To see if I could find anything about them online, I did a search for “bamboo family” and found this. The title of the page says “A family of bamboo toys.” That seems to be it, but it’s not. The bamboo toys were created by a Japanese artist called Jun-ichiro.
I like that the bamboo toys don’t come in a box. I think it’s just a reflection of Junichiro’s life and his love of nature (and bamboo) which in a way, gives you a more nostalgic and sentimental feeling than some plastic toy.
Junichiros life is quite interesting. He was born into a very traditional family and at the age of 13, he started working as a gardener at a famous Japanese garden. It was there where he first met Shirogane who taught him about the value of nature and how to connect with it. Along the way, his life has developed into a rather interesting one as he has been called by a number of people to be an “expert” on the Japanese culture.
As it turns out, the Japanese culture was at the very center of Junichiros life, because he was a key player in the creation of Deathloop and has many ties to the Japanese culture. We know this because Junichiros father was of course a Japanese national and his mother is from Japan. What’s more unusual is that Junichiros daughter is a Japanese national too. She is not an English girl, but she is rather a Japanese girl.
Junichiros daughter is the Japanese-born daughter of Junichiros mother, a Japanese national. She is a talented artist who has her own company, and she has a Japanese husband. She has not been around the Japanese culture for a while, and she has a younger brother who is more interested in the American culture. Her father is, of course, a Japanese national, as are most Japanese people.
