Breezy, holding and clap-clap

My original plan for this week was a much more ambitious set of interrelated entries. These will have to wait as it is far more complex than I anticipated.

For I have an entry for religion in Fujin, one for a bit of dishware in hashioki and on the sex trade the famous pan-pan girls.

Fujin (wind kami) 風神

hashioki (chopstick rest) 箸置き

pan-pan パンパン

In re. hashioki, when we're eating out my Life will oftentimes make her own ersatz hashioki out of the paper chopstick holder. She folds it in thirds with the base as the middle layer. Then she folds it along the longest axis. (Diagrams available upon request.)

My impression is that this is commonplace in Japan, but I can't think of where I've seen it in anime or manga.

I do the same. The Mifune Don noodle place in Japantown has an impromptu display of origami made from the paper holders, it is in the back on the sill of the the window between the dinning area and the cook.

Drop the "and" and this post title could be used for an anime TV series or a JPop band...
