Exhibition Time!!!!

            We had a terrific and successful exhibition. Many, many people come through Kotoriya and the Brewery. Folks came from as far away as Tokyo and Maebashi. After opening night, we celebrated our 5 1/2 weeks of working hard and getting along well together under one roof. We had, of course, the usual fabulous fare of traditional Japanese cuisine and sake and beer.

              We are cleaning out our studios today. I took my last walk to my beautiful Kotoriya with a pang of sadness. I am looking forward to getting home, but I will leave a big chunk of my heart here in Onishi.
My friend Kazu gave me a two thumbs up!
