Timeless beauty, somehow reminds me of the Kanji character for poetry.
A nice Wednesday for you.

it's far, very far... but if you ever visit japan, let us know, we'll take you to some awesome festivals.

Yes, the costumes were great! I'd like one of them myself.

hahaha! We do it to make you miss Japan. ;)

sometimes I wish I could travel back in time to see how it all looked back in the day.
