      The turtle creature thing is a "kappa."

      strange stuff i thought it was a Tengu No Tamago , but it is another varition

      maybe holding a betelnut (slight chance )

      one way or another imo this must be good stuff

      greetings Waki

      sorry to intrude , this has to go to an expert, because i believe it is EDO period

      you can.t play games with Edo versus Meijji periode because of the possible value differences

      this feels good
