IMPORTANT!

As of the 31st of August, 2014 the Immortal Geisha forums has ceased accepting membership requests and become read only. To read further about this, please visit this thread:

Never fear, though! Immortal Geisha has moved over to Facebook! You can now find us all over here:

Many deep and profound thanks to everyone who participated and supported the forums over the years. 12 years is a great run for a message board, and here's to continuing the years over on Facebook!

I have never seen this style obi but I loved the colours. What is the season for this and is there hidden meanings for this scenery theme.

That's just a fukuro obi, albeit a pretty one. I doubt there's any hidden meanings, and I think it doesn't really have a season, though I am NOT the expert on seasonal motifs, so don't take my word on that. Too bad it's from shinei, else I'd bid on it...

I did take the risk, but I am not fully sure what risk... I know there has been some kind of broblems.
