  3. Hello Camila, Oh yes I think I was the only 'big kid' in the workshop! I even had to ask...'kodomo dake desu ka?' which was my henna Japanese way of trying to ask if big kids were allowed too! (which, thankfully we were!)

    Dawn! hello lovely! You would have made such a cute one!

    Hello Sun, Thanks for popping by again. No those images below are from a different part of the market. The houses in the last picture were in fact ceramic. Although I have seen similar ones in timber too.

    Hi Shinya, if you ever get a chance I think you would like to visit Momiji Ichi Markets!

  15. Without sounding too sentimental :), It's always such a joy to read your blog posts! You're my Japanese connection giving me the most adorable links and hints interwoven with art and fun and a little peek into the experience of living in Japan.
    Every post is like a postcard from a friend. Delightful and endearing. Although we don't know each other.

    I will be traveling to Japan in the autumn of 2011 for the first time in my life. I can't wait to feel and see Japan in real life. Traveling to Japan has been a childhoods dream. I hope to find new crisp inspiration for my own work and maybe even some long board surfing.

    So thanks for your sweet little insights, it's the perfect preparation for my travel. I'm going to buy your Tokyo guide as well. Hopefully you still have some paper issues.
    Cheers,
    Karen
