Matsumoto Craft Fair 2011

The power this fair has is amazing. It is seen as the crown of craft fairs in Japan, aswarm with people with loads of cash looking for things to buy. I was at the Himeji fair a couple of weeks ago and had no less than 10 exhibitors congratulate me on being accepted into Matsumoto Craft Fair.  You can see the participants here, http://matsumoto-crafts.com/cfm/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/fairlist2011.pdf I called up the organizer of the Karuizawa Craft Fair to ask about sending photos with my application and they recognized my name as being on the roster at Matsumoto.

My prediction is this fair, Tomoshibito, list of last years exhibitors here,  will at least equal if not surpass Matsumoto in the next couple of years.

I am all packed up and ready to spend a very rainy weekend in Matsumoto city. The rainy season has started, almost 2 weeks earlier than usual, and Saturday is forecast to be very rainy, Sunday a little less so.
