Sorry, I've been so quiet lately! I actually just got back from Japan a week ago, and I'm still recovering somewhat. I didn't buy too many things while I was there, but here are a few of the spoils! A polka dot haneri, blue and purple obiage, blue ombré obijime, shamisen bachi strap, and a shou (mouth organ) strap (that one was actually a gift).
I'd love to explain the details of the trip now, but that will have to wait. Thank you for your patience!
