Sunday Sept 16

Its September and as the glow of the August sword slowly fades it is time for us to gather round the tables and share our “Treasures from the Taikai”. Bring in your latest acquisitions and let’s all learn what has caught your eye and captured your heart.

In addition to new acquisitions we ask tha t you bring any examples of the Mishina school that you might have. So we’re talking about Kanemichi, Rai Kinmichi, Etchu n/k Masatoshi, Tamba n/k Yoshimichi, Hisamichi and others. Should we get some good examples we hope to entice our special guest,Professor Gordon Robson, to shared with us some of his hard won knowledge on this premier school of the Shinto period.
