State of Grace has nothing but love for our new neighborhood of Japantown. This past weekend we celebrated Obon with the Buddhist Temple around the corner
I tattooed one of the kids who works over at Santo Market and he had to slice 1800 lbs of meat for skewers! There was a food court right outside our window, it was hard to concentrate it smelled so good
Horitomo and Harumi went Saturady night with some friends
There were some information booths and women making flowered leis
You can't quite see it in this picture, but the shave ice line went around the block! Our friends waited in line for over an hour
The thrill of the weekend was definitely the taiko drumming. Crowds clamored to watch the performances. It was amazing!
