One of my students, Yuka-san, came with me to the Kyu Iwasaki-tei gardens today. The house there was built for the Iwasaki family, namely Iwasaki Yataro, co-founder of Mitsubishi. It was designed by the British architect Josiah Condor. I will be putting more information up on Japanorama.co.uk this week about the house with more pictures.
These two items were in the tea house, the only Japanese-style part of the residence. One is a detail from a ceiling lampshade. I don't know what the rabbit and parasol item is called but it was very pretty.
