Kokeshi Designs at Utah's Nihon Matsuri May 21 2014, 0 Comments

Thank you to everyone who came out in the cold / rainy weather and visited our booth this year. We love seeing old friends and making new ones. It rained almost all day, but people seemed to really enjoy this awesome annual Japanese cultural celebration. We even waited in the Ramen line to warm up. The Japanese heritage in Utah is very interesting and inspiring.

Also, please enjoy this short video of the big day. Thanks again and see you next year.
