Cup of Death
By Shannon Gilligan
The people of Japan take their cultural pursuits seriously. Your friend Kenichi calls and tells you that a tea ceremony bowl has been stolen from the Ura Senke School of Tea. It's only when Kenichi's brother Takashi tells you how valuable the bowl might be on the black market that you begin to suspect more than a minor theft.
Your boring New Year's vacation is about to get a lot more interesting. Your search for the tea bowl known as "Yukisoo" will take you all over Kyoto and beyond before you are done. Or done in. Good luck!
