Tatami Okobo with Tag

Okay, so now these....I think there might be the possibility that they were used in Memoirs of a Geisha. They were sold by a liquidator in Cailfornia from a "Props and Motion Picture Facility". The real reason that I think there might be a connection though, is that they have a tag on them reading "Julia Ling" (The same actress of "Chuck" fame, for all you tv geeks out there like me) She was an uncredited in the film and played a role as a "spring festival dancer" according to IMDB. It's not like it's really certifiable or anything, and all I have is a hunch, but I've emailed the seller for more information concerning its origins, so hey, we'll see what that turns up.
