Who could not be charmed?

Charlene often wanders the labyrinths of eBay. (Someone has to do it.) And often finds the language of the Empire used in odd ways by those on the periphery. Some Japanesian...

This is a tray of Japanese wooden ware. This was made about 40 years ago.
Such a tray is mainly used in green tea of middle grade SENCHA.
Social status is high and a SENCHA tool is very popular.
This is made very well and has a very good work. The shape is very good, too.
I do not know what wood this is. But this is hard and heavy quality wood anyway.
This is the high-class tea-thing tray seriously made by the specialist.
Please purchase at this opportunity, and add to your tea utensils collection.

This is mild by comparison...we lived in Japan for six and a half years and saw "Janglish" as we called it, everywhere...advertisements, shop windows, restaurant menus, instruction manuals...

there have been books written about it.
