  1. We’ll be there, bringing one or two of our “O-cha-loving” grandaughters with us, to sort of “represent” Washington State, USA. Since visiting Shizuoka and the World Tea Museum there in Kanaya, two years ago, and learning about this every-other-year Matsurii, we’ve been counting the days!!! Is anyone else attending from across the big pond?

  2. Dear Don and Barbie! Greetings!
    I went to Kanaya to do some research yesterday. I got some pamphlets and will get more around the 6th of April. They are in Japanese but they will be useful. Actually an English-speaking friend working for the Shizuoka City Tourism Bureau might join us!
