@nanapuzzler, I somehow missed responding to your comment until now. My apologies. I can easily see why you are partial to all things Japanese. My affinity was sparked at age 8 by a Rumer Godden children's book, "Miss Happiness and Miss Flower." It seems you're learning along with your grandson. How wonderful! I'm not too surprised to learn that Shōjō isn't the only sake loving Japanese spirit. Thank you so much for sharing!


Thank you Carol*!* I absolutely LOVE this and am partial to all things Japanese*!* My grandson taught himself how to read, write and speak Japanese and studied their history, customs and religions. We wanted to go spend a year there but funds haven't permitted. We watch lots of Anime shows together and many of their "spirits" are fond of Sake.


A bottle of sake will do that! :-)) I agree about the sharing, carol...
well said.


Thank you, as well, mandato! Posting a puzzle is a much richer experience when other puzzlers share their thoughts and draw me back into the piece. From now on I'll think of Shōjō's impish grin when I see a bottle of sake.


I agree with gerdje17....subtly sublime. Thank you!


I knew it wouldn't be to many people's taste. So, I'm especially glad to hear it struck a positive note with you, gerdje. Thanks for your comment!

Many thanks for this VERY special puzzle !
