I don't know if this can be of interest but they are some pictures of kumano brochure taken at the information center and some funny pictures of Kumano city.

@Jeanette thank's for the help. Unfortunatelly, now i am without a computer, my little pest have destroied the key board of our little computer. But i have found an application for iphone that luckily it worked.

@Kay in my case convince my husband was relatively simple. I hade never been to Hiroshima before and really wanted to see it and he wanted to show me and especially the child this important place of japan and world hostory so the first goal was simple. For Kumano he was really interested to see the museum and the painting brushes and non last he was not aware that is nation was so famous in the world for the production of make up brushes so he became curious. Yes i have talked a lot of this blog with him and totally plagiarized is mind :twisted: .

Hello Animor,

Thanks so much for sharing such an awesome experience, I believe so many of us would love to get the experience of visiting the mecca of brushes, the information you gave was awesome and i plan to use it for another visit to Japan. I wish I did when I visited Japan before, but it is never too late. :D
