Osaka. Tattooed for several days. Today waiting for Mr. Dolberg's flight to arrive. Free time for to visit the shoga nihon ga ten (sumi shop) and re-up.

Treviño scribbled down rough directions to this place nine years ago. Been returning once a year since. Could likely find this sumi for purchase within the online morass but the process is more fulfilling to wait until I'm in country and again revisit the same connoisseur shop. The proprietor always recognizes me but seems a bit perplexed as to why I show up every 12 months to acquire an identical block of sumi. This time I forgot to bring the wooden box label for memory reference however he knew which one I required. Is good.
