Welcome to AKAI-HANAO-NO-JOJO
Every summer my shop, AKAI-HANAO-NO-JOJO, has held an annual contest, in the form of a "geta-quiz" where 10 people can win a pair of beautiful Japanese geta. This has always been limited to the customers that have come into my shop, and last year, summer of 2000, I opened this contest to all people in Japan, through my web site.
But this year, to celebrate my International Web Site (http://www.karankoron.com), I am opening this contest to all people, everywhere. Geta fans in every country can now get their own Japanese Geta through this site and play this Geta-Quiz contest.

Hint Kunoichi's Musings from AUSTRALIA
Go see her web site at "Japanese Footwear @ Karankoron - Geta and Zori"
One day as I was faced with a difficult English problem, she appeared like a gale via e-m@il and helped me with my work.
She is just like a ninjya , "kunoichi" a professional, highly trained spy.

I agree with her comments such as:
"It's an integral part of the geta. Without it, they are not real geta...."

How to wear

Hint The word "karankoron" can also be found in a book called "Botan Dourou"[牡丹灯籠] that is a very famous Japanese ghost story. " with the sound of Japanese wooden clogs echoing all around" "KARANKORON, KARANKORON, KARANKORON"...............the ghost is coming near. Watch out! ^_^
