I had to drive to Yamagata for a wedding and though the drive wasn't too bad, it was worrisome going through the mountains. Obviously I arrived home safely.
The wedding took place in the Bunsho-Kan and there just happened to be a Charity Ikebana show going on.
This piece was my favourite because it reminds me of the tripods from War of the Worlds.
Here are several samples of other pieces. I wonder where they got all the fresh flowers, greenhouses?
There was also a mini-museum within showcasing a few cultural icons. I love the dragon!
Finally, here are a few snowy pictures.
Best piece of the show Santa and a pair of reindeer!
Tomorrow I hope to post something silly. This one was almost serious...
