 Yes, their website is
and it looks great. I will try and check it out.

>>I've got about 36 hours to spend in Japan while on my way to Indonesia. I fly into Narita, and I wonder if anyone knows of puppet related activities in Tokyo this weekend? In particular, I wonder about any bunraku theater, a place where I can get a close look at these puppets? Museum are also a possibility. What can a puppet fan see in such a short time? Thanks for any suggestions on or off list - A postcard will go to anyone with a helpful suggestion.
