Yamaguchi Art and Craft Fair.

I am attending the Yamaguchi Art and Craft Fair or here for the second time. This time I will be going with my 9 year old son. Last year it was interesting to get out and see some of Japan.

I did a volunteer event last weekend where I met a potter that lives close to the guy, you will need Japanese fonts installed to properly see the link, I apprenticed to. The potter wasn’t selling his work but he was selling shishinabe, wild boar stew. The fact he was there selling that stew let me know how sales were this year. He went to the Matsumoto Craft Fair, the king of craft fairs here in Japan. I asked him how it was and he said he sold almost nothing. I later heard through the grapevine, i.e., he told my wife, that it really got him down to not sell at the MATSUMOTO CRAFT FAIR.

Here are some pictures of my preparations.
