"Takahatafudo Flea Market"




Yesterday, I went to the monthly flea-market, at Takahatafudo Temple.
My dear friend, and fellow flea-market enthusiast Kristy, invited/ reminded me of this event.

It was a very sunny, warm day, our small group met, and soon went off in different directions...

I enjoy this flea market;
with its twists and turns all around the temple grounds,
with all sorts of treasures to look over...

But the afternoon heat found me climbing to higher, more shadier grounds...

The wafting incense smoke, traveling on the hillside breeze,
through branches of Japanese maple,
helped to make the heat manageable...

"Hydrangea & Temple View"




At the market, I bought a Labradorite pendant.

it's gorgeous earthy green, with flecks of blue blazing in the hot sun, caught my eye...

The colors of it, matched the day...

It's about 2cm (a little over an inch) in size,
and the seller was kind enough to attach a bail to it,
so it's ready to wear...

My friend Kristy and I
had a rare couple hours to hang out and peruse
some of our favorite fun shops...

When we got to the 3rd floor,
we were surprised to see the "red & white striped curtains"
that surround newly closed shops.

After a moment,
curiosity replaced our disappointment.

What remained behind the curtains?

What was left of this one-time Palace of Kitsch;
our beloved 390¥ shop...?

We peeked inside the curtains
to see many neatly-packed plastic containers.

Walls that once held the gamut of thrift-store paraphernalia,
lay threadbare,
like a Who-ville house after a Grinch visit...

The blue M&M's guy stood in a far corner,
arms still posed in the now strangely poignant double thumbs up,
topped off with his signature white gloves...

In the 390¥ stores' happier times


My personal favorite, Sharky,
was still mounted on the wall...

A fun time for Kristy & I,
we both shall miss the 390¥ shop,
especially the outrageous & wonderfully manic music!

Yesterday's Ikebana:

Ikebana # 81
8-11-2010



The night before, August 10,
was the annual fireworks
on the Tama river.

My son Michio & I,
have made it a family tradition
to make that annual trek down to the riverbank,
at 6am,
to put our tarp down and reserve our spot.

This year,
Lorna, Hiroshi, and Kristy joined us.

Lorna brought some delicious
home-made dishes and cocktails.

Hiroshi brought his red, red wine.

Kristy brought chocolate-filled koala cookies.

I brought plum-flavored potato chips, cheese & crackers, watermelon,
and this :




Kirin alcohol-free beer




There was a delicious night breeze
that cooled and calmed us...


And of course...

Best wishes to all my traveling friends,
