To begin with, I had in mind that I would ask for a stall at the event but I couldn't find any information and left it alone. Then all of a sudden I found a facebook event had been setup detailing the event. By that time, it was only a couple of weeks away and it was too close to Kitacon so I didn't have enough time to make twice the number of kanzashi. In addition, part of me thought that people visiting the Japan Day were more interested in the experience of the day rather then buying.
So another kimono outfit needed to be organised. I choose a nice white kimono with red fans.
and for a change I decided to use a hanhaba obi and tie a more casual musubi. I don't know what it is called but I probably seen it being worn by someone.
So outfit sorted, time to find the event. It isn't too obvious from the outside that the event is happening.
But when you go in there you see straight in front of you (down some stairs) a yukata dressing which was very popular.
So what else is there?
If you walk towards the main hall of the centre then there was the following
Irensei playing table.
and one can not forget Japan Centre.
On stage there was various acts but I didn't pay too much attention. Overall I spent 2 hours at the event and for £6 it wasn't bad. There was a maid cafe but since I was on my own I didn't feel like sitting there eating a cupcake on my own.
Oh there was some lovely obi and a kimono being used for display by the origami section but I couldn't take nice photos of them. Here is the best photo out of the lot, I should have asked where they were from.
