Bath Japanese Festival

Mar 31 2010: Japanese paper art, film and poetry head to the UK for the Bath Japanese Festival.

Alan Summers: Not quite sure why some text has a line through it? ;) But just want to say thanks for supporting the festival! ;) all my best, Alan
Alan Summers: It would be great wouldn’t it? ;) Maybe next year when the festival can be planned over a whole year unlike this first festival which came together within two months. ;) Thanks for promoting the festival! ;-) all my best, Alan
Kjeld Duits: Hi Alan, that would be incredibly cool! You should look into it; it would probably create an additional stream of income for the festival.

Tokyo "Hair Style"

Feb 18 2010: Ever wished you could instantly change your hairstyle? These funky accessories make it possible.

Kjeld Duits: Yeah, I just mentioned that to Deanne’s boyfriend. I wonder if they adopted it for the meaning “darling” or “little treasure.” But it is quite a surprise to find Dutch in a Japanese company name.
Jini: haha ‘schatje’ design? that’s a dutch word… any connection? or random coincidence? hmm i like the designs though! but i don’t think i would wear it…
