I went here solely to purchase some Japanese gifts - they have jewellery, ceramics etc. What was nice was that many were by specific artists which added a more personal touch to the mass produced variety

We went to this museum and my wife got dressed as a performer, smiling all the way through as two ladies dressed her. We then went up to the second floor to read and see all about it.
