We are now in art-design festive season in Tokyo, many events and seminars are popping up throughout the city.
As I have an appointment with an Italian man and a Cyprian designer, I chose kimono style today to welcome them in autumn colors.

I drop by a Japanese sweets shop to take a rest. Enjoying a small cake in the shape of a kaki and Japanese green and brown tea, a fabric work caught my eyes.

This is the most impressive work in this season for me, more Japanese and familiar fantasy.

Yumiko’s threads realize wave bubbles. No same forms as so are the bubbles.

Another place in Aoyama, Tokyo of Torindo has a gallery.
Which taste will touch you, authentic or playful craft?
