Gunma no Mori Craft Fair

25 Apr

So, before I saw the Harem Master card game, my husband and I were at this. This is the annual Gunma Forest (Gunma no Mori) Craft Fair and it was great! Crafts included wood working, leather working, ceramics and other handicrafts. We saw wonderfully made tables for both children and adults; my favorites were the chairs where the back was some type of animal (pigs, boars, cows and hippos abounded).

There was a older man who made children’s spin tops at his tent, and he had a top that was the size of cantaloupe. Watching him as he poured the paint on the spinning top was cool!

And my absolute favorite was the woman selling her hand carvings. She had loads of animals frolicking on her tabletop; many different birds, whales, frogs and even a manatee! And a slug! Check her out at http://www.woodcraft-nishioka.com

Can’t wait for next year, so we can go again! (Maybe I’ll remember my sunscreen next time…and some small food items. Thanks to Liz for sharing her Cadbury eggs!)
