From last March, the typical Parsi items, ses and Sedre Kusti have been exhibited in the permanent space of National Museum of Ethnology in Osaka, Japan. It is a great honor for me to initiate this exhibition them. The National Museum of Ethnology in Osaka is quite unique in its style. The administrators are scholars only. They have returned their study results to society. So you can learn so many and diversified cultures all around the world at one time if you visit here. Now the Parsi items are one of them. I got a ses set from Mumbai shop. Also my Parsi friends gave me other things from their stocks. I sincerely appreciate their co-operation. Please visit the museum and check those items whenever you have a chance to come to Japan.
