Fujino Views and Silk worms

I recently went on a trip to Kanagawa prefecture, Fujino-town a small remote place tucked in the mountains. There I visited a friend I deeply respect for his incredibly diverse experiences with Japanese textiles; Bryan Whitehead. The next several posts will be about this trip and the incredibly wonderful things I got to see and learn.
