Sturdy Hands Needed


A blurry photo of the Hanko, something that cannot be blurred.

When we use these on official documents the stamp has to be clear. If it's blurred, then sometimes you have to make the whole document over again.

Serious business, this hanko!

I remember using my hanko at the 16 Bank when I was a teacher in Gero-Onsen! I still have it!
Your comment on my blog made my day today - domo arigato!

«Louis» has noticed the beauty of the official documents from Japan in paperwork Mme la Vache has from her 15 years of living in Japan.
The paper, the printing, the stamps are all beautiful.

Yes, I agree with Louis.

From the thumbnail, I thought these were corks!

Oh, this is neat and interesting information! I thought they were corks at first too!

I'm not doing a series in b&w, but I do have quite a few going up at the moment. I prefer working with b&w though.
