Japan Dreams 5 - Asakusabashi
Therefore, I am going to spend a whole day in Asakusabashi, which is a district filled with bead shops- one after another. Bliss!! It also is home to some Japanese doll stores and big craft shops (Bliss again!)
So I have photocopied about 40 different projects from my bead books and translated them to English and drawn up an enormous list of beading requirements. 40 projects = alot of beads!
I do feel a little sorry for my son who will be in tow. Is it cruel to make a little boy spend a whole day in bead town? Hopefully I will stumble across a model car shop whilst I am there so I can buy something to bribe him.
Have a look here to see the bead shops I will be visiting: http://www.bel-art.co.jp/shop_shop/beadsshop_map.html
