We will exhibit at the Kyoto Gift Show.
Today and tomorrow, we will be exhibiting at the Kyoto Gift Show. We have been selected by the Kyoto Prefecture as one of their material projects called EFFECT, so we will only be exhibiting washi glass and convex and concave washi textiles, not washi accessories.
The event will be held at a venue called "Miyakomesse" in Okazaki, Kyoto, an area where Heian Shrine is located and museums are clustered.
It's a fun place to gather all kinds of things, but it's only open to buyers.
I think it would be more enjoyable for everyone if there was a marketplace where the general public could come and go as they please, and buy what they want.
Whenever I go to an exhibition, I always feel that there are a lot of people who are just buyers, but there are also a lot of people who are just here to copy ideas (you can tell who these people are just by asking them certain questions).
In the first place, the literal translation of the word "buyer" is "purchaser," right? I wonder how many people are willing to buy.
I have a lot on my mind, but it's a great opportunity to connect with many different exhibitors, so I'll do my best!
