To blog or not to blog...

We are contemplating the use of our Blog (http://www.BlogRopeMarks.com), in the current digital environment dominated by social media the usefulness of a separate blog seems... superfluous.

I am very interested to hear your opinions on this subject?
And I am very intersted to learn if you actually read our blog?

Awaiting feedback and an executive decision you can reach us through the regular (and less regular) social media platforms.

Update: After feedback on my questions, on social media, not on this blog (there's a neon sign) we have decided that for now we stop using this blog and move our blogging activities to social media. Please reach out for us there if you have not done so.

For a yet undetermined time this blog will remain live as an archive and for emotional :) reasons.

Kaidan Chibusa Enoki

The Ghostly Tale of the Wet Nurse Tree by Ito Seiu

Kaidan Chibusa EnokiEvery August, as Japanese spirits return en masse from the otherworld, Tokyo's Zenshoan temple (map) exhibits a spine-chilling collection of 19th-century ghost scroll paintings

This painting by Ito Seiu, the godfather of Japanese bondage (kinbaku), depicts a scene from Kaidan Chibusa Enoki, an old horror story in which the ghost of a dead painter returns to protect his baby from his murderer, a wandering samurai who fell in love with his wife while he was away painting.

This scroll shows the ghost holding the baby while standing under a waterfall at Juniso (map) (where Tokyo's Shinjuku Chuo Park is now located).
