Plate Kitchen

where to find chinese/japanese stuff?

i love oriental culture. especially japanese and chinese.
i love their attention to details and their delicate themes.
i would like to start introducin in my house some of the items were/are used traditionally in that culture.
i would like some plates/kitchen and table ware, typical teapots and sake cups, typical serving dishes, bed sheets, pillows, even books on the culture, make up, personal hygen products and items, paintings/drawings and ornaments, both for the house and myself.
the only problem is i don't know where to start, as my town is little and there isn't a specialised shop and the web confuses me a bit.
any help? x

I would suggest you first realise that Chinese/Japanese is not "that" culture. They are two very different cultures. Hundreds of years ago, Japan borrowed heavily from China, but what you see in Japan and China today are two very different cultures that are opposites in some ways.

When you have studied more about these two cultures, I would see which one you like more and concentrate on that.

That's just my advice. If you want to mix and match, that is of course up to you, but for me, when decorating, I find the two would usually clash.

If you have any further questions, especially about things Japanese, please feel free to ask.

Good luck and have fun.
