THE 59th JAPAN TRADITIONAL ART CRAFTS EXHIBITION
September 17th was Respect-for-Senior-Citizens Day. A recreational meeting for the aged was held at a nearby town meeting place. My neighborhood association gave my mother kouhaku manju(red and white buns filled with sweat bean paste).
Compared with last year, the average life expectancy for Japanese decreased. It is said that increased deaths due to last year's quake and tsunami was one of the causes for it.
The 59th Japan Traditional Art Crafts Exhibition(日本伝統工芸展) is being held at Mitsukoshi department store in Tokyo from September 19th to October 1st.
The exhibition's winning works are available in each venue, but their prices are not indicated. I'll tell you about the features of this year's exhibition later.
