Haiga exhibtion -the day one
The exhbition site is about 50 minutes by car, but today, I took the train and even though the ride was pleasant, took me more than two hours. Should have taken the car.
When I got there, there were already some people there. I met Takeda san and his secretary. Takeda san is the head of the Kanan-cho municipal and had wrote a few words of recommendation for the exhibition flyer. He liked the exhibit and promised to spread words around.
If you have noticed, I am wearing a strange looking hat. I saw my singer friend was wearing it today. This is the kind of hat Basho used to wear back in olden days. I was surprised it was still manifactured today. I borrowed it and tried it on myself. It was light and fitted nicely. I might get one myself.
The day one begain quietly. But starting from tomorrow, the museum will hold a summer special exhibition. A lot of visiters are expected, and I hope they will get to see our exhibition, too.
