Ancient Japanese Scriptures

on August 14, 2012

This very unique card comes from Mai in Japan who chose it because of my love of history. She tells me this is the letter that Saicho (the founder of the Biddhist Tendai sect) wrote to a disciple in the 9th century. She’s also chosen a beautiful summery stamp too. Really lovely! Especially as she says she didn’t even know where the Channel Islands were before she got given my address – its so nice to spread knowledge too!
