    This sounds interesting! I would especially like to see the candy maker:) Too bad I live too far away. Maybe someday something like this will come to my area.
    Have a wonderful weekend,

    Hi Victoria…This looks pretty interesting. Wish I could have attended. I would have surely bought a kimono or two, as well as few dolls.
    Have a nice weekend!

    Thanks for dropping by, Karen. 🙂

    Rachna, I think it would have been an even longer trip for you. LOL. I'm sure I'll end up buying my daughter a doll and probably more than one piece of candy. ;D I'd really love it if my nephew, Kosuke can join us as he can tell us about what we're seeing.

    Dara, if you end up coming, let me know. I'd love to meet you in person and show you around town. For a cattle drive city, we have some nice sight seeing stuff. ;D
