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

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

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

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

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