Blew my wad.
Might try to go back at end of trip.
Too much to see.
Too many fabrics.
That's 100 yen a meter folks.
Right when you walk into Tomato.
I saw some really good fabrics too.
100 yen equals about $1.24 or so.
It translates really easy - my Skyliner train cost 4700 yen round trip which is about $47.00
The third picture shows fabrics from Finlayson in Finland at $2600 yen a meter.
Patterns -mostly Japanese. Some simplicity.
Tomato had some purse patterns - nothing unique.
I found airplane fabrics!
Every shop girl wears a mask. The guys are too cool to wear them. Women man the register but guys hustle the rolls of fabric.
Most stores are multi-storied with narrow pathways thru the rolls and bolts.
Fire hazard? Definitely no americans with disabilities act.
Some fabric kits. Found sashiko in Tomato - all kits I've seen before in Oregon.
Stairwells are used as fabric galleries.
There is an elevator in Tomato but most stores have stairs.
Got a nice glute workout today.
(There are no stairs in canbyland).
The button store.
Just like in Goteberg, Sweden --too overwhelmed by choices to buy.
Make your own mask pattern.
