I am back from Japan and planning to go again in January, this time to Okinawa. I have even timed it this time so I can go to the Tokyo Quilt Show. Although currently I haven't actually got a plane ticket back as all the 'airmiles seats' are full at the moment. I have managed to book to get the whole family home to NZ except myself.
The latest trip included Kyushu Island including Kurume (splash dyed ikat fabrics), Kanazawa (fancy stencilled kimono) and Bunka Womens University textile museum in Tokyo.
The next post wil have the textile related events for Wellington.
