Nekkei Matsuri

Hi all!
I went to the Nekkei-Matsuri (Japanese-American Festival) in San Jose Japantown a while back and just wanted to share pictures! :)
They had a good amount of stores that sold a lot of neat stuff: jewelry, crafts, ceramics, shirts, patterned paper, etc. Definitely a lot of hand-made items too.
I have no idea why I took a picture of these kitty greeting cards haha! :P
Awwww! A teddy in a mini kimono! Isn't that so adorable! :P They also made kimonos for barbies. Awesome stuff.
They also had some entertainment. Man, they make me want to learn how to beat the Taiko drums!
It was a pretty hot day so it was nice to go inside and watch the sword performance. Sorry for the dark picture. There wasn't much lighting inside. That hot girl in front was bad ass!
People busy making tempura! I was being a fatty and so I ate it before I got to take a picture of it :P
At least I got to take a quick picture of the calamari. :p Yum!
Fat Ox!!! :P
Haha this amused me :p
Here's the full display if you were curious...
Fat horse. Haha! I can't help it! Fat stubby looking animals amuse me! :P

Maybe you are sick of seeing fat stubby stuff, I'll end this post with pretty ikebana then...
