It was only a two weeks ago since Hyper Japan but yesterday was August meetup and this time we decided to have a picnic at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.
Here are the other members posing in the Japanese garden by the bamboo water feature.
We all made too much food for the picnic but that is never a problem and although Lyuba could not be there with us I took along the Lyuba kokeshi doll.
It was a fun day as you can see here where April and I were testing the see saw in the children's playground.
The next KDJ meeting will be in London for the London Matsuri. I'm not sure if I will be able to make it because it is on a Sunday but that doesn't stop all you other people who live closer to London.
