Who was it that said that Japanese universities are four years of no-studying?
Back to Karatsu. The tour was organised by my finishing school, which is called Finishing School Infini. So, the participants were mostly older women (including three teachers, the principal and one staff), and only three guys.
We had this really cute pink bus though:
|I took this partway through the trip.|
And because it was a one hour bus ride, we were given food and drinks, in typical Infini style:
|I love the fact that they gave us a cup! (If you're wondering,|
I took the photo after I came back)
The inside of the house/restaurant was really pretty as well! I didn't take photos of the food because whipping out my DSLR for every course would have been a bit embarrassing, but rest assured, the food was great!
|I love the pictures on the doors!|
Another point they made was that when I was in Singapore, it's fine for me to modify the kimono to make it easier to wear (I was talking about how difficult it was to put it on properly). Apparently, there are even people who are turning Kimono into Western clothes, and even the teacher thinks there's nothing wrong with doing things your own way. I still want to take the class once I've finished the basic course though, it would be fun to learn how to choose an appropriate kimono and put it on myself.
|Cake shop. I thought it looked kinda Totoro-like magical, but then again,|
I've been wanting to go to Nukumori no Mori.

Anyway, I've just realised that if I type out the whole trip in one post, I will end up not sleeping because I'm only halfway done with my presentation slides (I consider this "break time"). So I'll stop here, at the food, and go on to the pottery part/actual tour either tomorrow or Wednesday, depending on when I have time.
