  9. Hi,

    I’d love to get one or more copies of “One Hundred Poets on Mount Ogura”, but don’t get to Kyoto as often as I’d like. Though I know I can mail Kawaguchi-san an order, are there any places to buy it in Osaka or Nara? Tomorrow (Sat, 10/23), I’ll be bouncing around Tenmabashi & probably Umeda areas, and am generally in town Mondays & Wednesdays for work.

    Btw… I found out through Michael’s “Deep Kyoto” blog, but have you bookmarked now too.

    Thanks, and nice work!
