Good morning everybody, thank you for your comments on my last post. The sun is shining in Tokyo this morning after a night of torrential rain. This is the view from my hotel window. I haven't taken any pictures at the gallery yet, I'll do that today and post them later. It was a busy day yesterday, with a steady stream of visitors to the gallery. It's been good to meet Motoyasu Hirayama, the potter from Tamba with whom I'm sharing this exhibition - he makes some great pots. His family are lovely, three little children who I think are finding my western features amusing - they're all smiles and the little boy wants to hold my hand all the time.
The jet lag is a killer. The journey really took it out of me and I ended my first full day with a nasty migraine, but I feel much better for a good sleep and hopefully will start to settle in to this time zone.
I managed to tackle the Tokyo train system ok and haven't got lost yet, but I'm sure I will before my time here is done. Tomorrow will be the big test, when I head in to the city on my own. I feel quite lonely here, although everybody has been very kind to me, but it's very different from my days alone in my little workshop, I'm a fish out of water.
I'll be back later with some pictures from the gallery, bye for now.
Thanks for the update.Sounds like you are making it over each hurdle as you come to it.Have a great time.
I was beginning to wonder if you were lost in the air between here and Tokyo. Glad you made it OK and are making friends. Enjoy the adventure. E x
happy travels fitchy, you'll start to get your bearings soon!, have a great show :))
You made it and you have a room with view! Sincere congratulations on your show ......... And incredible journey.
I found the subway system in Toyko a bit mind bending but people were very helpful to get me where I needed to be. Best wishes!
I've been thinking about you! So glad to get an update. What an amazing adventure! And I am not surprised that you have made a little friend. :) Can't wait to see pictures of the gallery!
Glad you got there its a bit far to send out a search party. Have fun and make a few notes!
So excited for you - well done!!! Thanks for sharing your trip!
