    Hello.

    I was in the Kodokan Library and Museum recently, and noticed a pinboard displayed with a number of national pins and judo club pins.

    Miss Motohashi and Miss Hoshi get a lot of international visitors, and a number were kindly offering them pins. They wanted to recognize those gifts so they put up a board near the entrance and placed the pins on the board.

    I told them that I would tell folks about it, and here you are.

    If you'd like to donate a pin to be displayed in the Library, at the entrance to the Kodokan Museum, please send your pin and a brief explanation to:

    Kodokan Library
    ATTN: Miss Motohashi
    1-16-30 Kasuga
    Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo 112-0003 Japan

    It is a fun and colorful project.

    Regards,

    NBK

    Please pass my pledge of undying devotion ... and my apologies for not stopping by with the gigabytes of documents from Jerry Hays ... to the lovely Miss Motohashi. But that only means "great, now I have to run out and have pins made ... and who the heck wears pins anymore except creepy secret handshake types ... oh, wait ..."

    Will she accept a t-shirt instead? She can wear it for Super Cool Biz day.

    I Am sure they'd accept tee shirts but the two of them would fit in one of yours.

    I think patches is a great idea and assume they'd display them, too. Never mind the Japanese penchant for tiny and exquisite, I say bombard 'em with big and garish !

    Patch if she wants. From the Judo Forum Camp in 2008. Last one left. I'll try to remember to bring it when I go over next month.

    Our club has neither patch nor pin ... that's probably typical in our area. We tend towards t-shirts, hoodies, embroidery.

    does it have to be a new patch? I've got one I pulled off a too-ripped-to-wear gi that I'd be willing to part with, but it shows its age.

    When Hal Sharp and I visited the Kodokan in 2007 (I think the year is correct), I donated over fifty pins, they were stuck onto a piece of vinyl flooring material. I hope they still have them. Some of them was from USA clubs/shiais and other internationals sources (several US Open, 1996 Olympics, and a few from the 1986 and 1987 CISM International Championships).

    I will be taking my annual visit to the Kodokan in the last part of August this year. I always take some USA souvenirs and usually a few rare books and other items for the Kodokan library and museum. If you live near me, and would like to have me take something on behalf of your dojo, I will find room in my luggage. I will PM my mailing address if you wish to contact me.

    However, as NBK noted, the cost of postage for a patch mailed to Japan is not very expensive.
