えりを抜きたい Wanting to Tweeze the Nape of the Neck

Published by Hiromi Nishiwaki on

Hello My friend!

Today I'd like to introduce a new fountain pen from Hachimonji-ya in Yamagata prefecture.
Yamagata is situated in the Tohoku Region, North of Tokyo.
Pelican Stone Garden (modeled on Souverain M800)




Ukiyo-e

Wanting to Tweeze the Nape of the Neck (Eri o nukitai)/ Air Bladders of Fish
from the Sunomata RIver in Tôtômi Province (Tôtômi Sunomatagawa fue),
from the series Auspicious Desires on Land and Sea (Sankai medetai zue)
Kuniyoshi / 1852

This painting depicts a stunning beauty of the nape of the neck of a woman. It is an charming point of women, especially for Japanese women.

Our aestheticism highly emphasizes on the beauty of Unaji (the nape of the neck), as you see it in the costume of Maiko, an apprentice Geisha, in Kyoto.

By the way, Geisha is not a prostitute, they are a professional entertainers, who dance, play the music, make a tea in a formal way, etc. They are well trained to entertain customers in a sophisticated manner.

Thank you for reading and stay safe!
