"Chadou (茶道)" literally means 'tea road' or 'the way of the tea' (Dutch is thee-weg/weg van de thee). For reference of all the tea ceremony utensils and room, I used photos I made during/after a tea ceremony I attended in Japan.

"Kyuudou (弓道)" literally means 'bow road' or 'the way of the bow' (Dutch is boogweg/weg van de boog). The boy is wearing a t-shirt under his traditional clothing, because his clothing was referenced from a high school kyuudou-club photo and those students all wore t-shirts. The paper on the wall is just a part of a certificate for the first kyuudou-grade (1-kyuu/1級). The character for '1' is not '一', but '壱' is used here.

Subject:
An umbrella with Chetirri on it. Chetirri are little 4-legged animals swimming around on Moonplanet.
The bottom left and bottom right photo are taken outside (though the sun was shining). I also took pictures from the inside, because that's what the owner of the umbrella will be seeing most of the time. This umbrella has been sold at Abunai anime convention 2010.
