Noren, a cloth hung on at the entrance of shop

Noren, cloth hung on at the entrance of shop, Kyoto
This is Noren, cloth hung on at the entrance of shops or restaurants and the letter on the cloth shows a tea shop. The cloth says the bigger word, Cha(茶), meaning tea in Japanese, and below the word are the name of the shop, Ippodo(一保堂), written. I don't have any business relation with the shop but this is one of the best tea shops in Kyoto.

Thanks for your posts.
My daughter gave me as a present a book by Haruki Murakami "Kafka on the beach" some years ago.
With your pics I can complete my imagination.

Thanks for the comment, deslilas

It's a shame that I have read it yet. He is one of the best popular writer in Japan and seems to be affected by Kafka. By the way, he received the Cena Franze Kafka award a couple of years ago, and is said to be the potential Nobel prize winner...
