Magnificent Monday: Miiko Taka

Magnificent Monday

In my youth I read Shogun, which sparked an early fascination with the Japanese culture. Later I discovered the mini-series, which was amazingly true to the books. Kiri-san was played by Miiko Taka, who may not have been in many productions, but she still had a large impact on early me. As a Japanese American living through WWII, she & her family suffered through the indignity of a relocation camp for the duration of the war. Far too many have gone through the fear & uncertainty associated with forced relocation.

While her taste in earrings is beautiful, I’ve decided to focus more on Asian style hair pins. Not that I have seen many images of her, outside of movies, when she is using them, but I believe this is the first Asian I have honored on a Magnificent Monday, so I am going with more of a cultural item. Today’s selections were found at Amazon.com & I hope you enjoy these as much as I enjoyed finding them. 😉
