Speaking of masking tape, mt masking tape is famous and it’s from Okayama! There was a shop that sells kawaii masking tapes and some nice postcards and etc. in the Bikan-Chiku historical area in Kurashiki. ^_^
You see they decorate the entrance doors with masking tapes. How kawaii!
But what’s most exciting was that they have a desk in the shop and dozens of masking tapes and simple small paper bags to be decorated with so the shoppers like us can experience what it’s like to play with masking tapes! I love to do such things!! It’s free, of course!
There was a note asking only 1 bag per person and we should consider for the other people who wait to do that, but there was no one else but us in the shop then. So I was able to spend enough time to choose which tape to use among dozens of kawaii tapes.
While I was devoting myself to this work, some customers entered the shop and I felt pressured because I thought I looked as if I occupied this desk. I thought I had to finish it sooner because everyone would wish to do this.
Then I asked my hubby to take these pics and we left the desk immediately to yield to the next person, but there was no next person, surprisingly. They all left without playing with the tapes…:O I could have played with tapes for hours if I were allowed to make more decorated bags…it’d be nicer if I had made more bags and put some souvenirs in them to give to my friends.
Changing topics, we had a Udon breakfast in Kurashiki.
Bukkaketei Honpo Furuichi
It was good, reasonable and speedy. Quite nice for a breakfast. It seemed the restaurant is loved by the local people as well.
I’ll keep writing more posts on my journey so you can see some other parts of Japan via TKE. ^ ^
