A traditional Japanese 'Welcome' Soap from Tamanohada: "Give your houseguests something to talk about when they shower at your place. This extra-large soap on a rope was made in Japan on a kashigata – an intricately fashioned wooden mold. In the shape of an auspicious red snapper – believed to bring luck and good fortune – this eye-catching soap is a one-and-done housewarming present or a one-of-a-kind thank you gift. Scented with uplifting pomegranate – and made from naturally moisturizing palm oil – it's a long-lasting treat for the senses." 310g, $44 at Konmari, where you'll also find it in Black (brown sugar scent) and White (lily scent). Hat tip to Kevin!

I’m in Imaginary Authors Whiff of Waffle Cone, thanks to a kind reader. (It does not remind me of waffle cones, possibly because I have been eating the wrong waffle cones and need to get myself over to Salt & Straw.) Tea at the moment is Kusmi Tchaï of the Tiger.
