Il y avait des tissus teint par les petits aussi, en beaucoup de couleur.
Il faisait froid samedi, mais les gens à venu de partout avec leurs photos appareils, et ils ont profité bien je pense!
On Saturday I went to Nakai（中井）for Some no Komichi （染めの小道）. A long time ago, Nakai used to be the center for kimono cloth dyeing. These days they have an event once a year in which the whole town is transformed–the shops and restaurants hang curtains out front with traditional designs, they have booths selling silk knick-knacks, and the most impressive thing is the River Gallery. Along 300 meters of the Myoshoji River (妙正寺川）they hang strips of dyed fabric. They were really beautiful, some really vibrant, others more mute colors. Some of them were dyed by local school kids. It was cold that day, but lots of people came from everywhere with their cameras, and I think they were glad they came!
