She left me alone to forage through her boxes of kimono pieces and I came out with some lovely bright designs, as well as some more subdued ones.
After my trip to Jiyugoaoka, I went straight to my friend Jan's to hang out there for the afternoon with some other friends. One friend, Noriko, brought some beautiful obi pieces for me to take home. So kind! You can see them below.
I've spent the evening packing....and panicking!!!! I have so much stuff and may have to take a lot of it in hand luggage..... To soften the blow, I decided to have my last supper at the kaiten sushi (conveyor belt sushi) place in Shibuya.
It's fine to go on your own, which is what I did. People sit in rows and you have your own little area in front of you, with an iPad at eye level.
Order your food on the iPad, and sip your beer while you wait for the food to appear.
Each order comes whizzing along the conveyor belt and stops directly in front of you.
You then have to take your dish off the conveyor belt and if you don't, you get an angry button flashing and ringing at you. Note the picture on the button of an angry little man!
The fish was beautifully fresh and tasted even better when washed down with a cold beer.
