Saturday Evening at Yuzawaya……

Saturday after my doll excursion I returned to the hotel briefly to drop off packages and get some water. Then I was off again. This is a view from the walkway between the hotel and Shimbashi station.

Then, a view up one of the longer escalators, in the Tokyo train station.

And a view of the washi paper selection at this great craft place called Yuzawaya. It was so overwhelming and fun that I forgot to take more pictures! They had to kick me out when it closed at 8:30–coincidentally, just as I found the yarn section. I played dumb and acted like I was looking for the elevator…. 🙂

Found some amazing fabric, which I think I’ll use to make some kind of a throw. It depicts Japanese-style 1930s rag dolls. Aren’t they cool? One fabric is square panels, the other is an all-over print. I also got some (heavily clearanced….) regular quilting fabric with a Japanese print. That picture didn’t come out–will have to re-take that one.
