7:00am in a taxi to Kitano Jinja where there is a monthly "flea market" on the grounds of the shrine. It is a smaller market than some and the weather was fine. I look for good quality or curious "anything" and am very fast in making decisions and limits in far to bend over digging in piles or talking myself into a bargain.
Dealer friend and her daughter who kindly offered to take all my bundles to my hotel for me .
My reward for two hours of shopping is an ice coffee and some homemade raspberry jello with whipped cream. A nourishing breakfast at 11.
Ikebana I saw today.
My friend Kaho said ikebana is about reduction, not addition.
Walking along the small streets near my hotel.
Dinner at one of my favorite places.
