After this we had lunch in the Museum in the historic park near to the factory. This display is part of a festival for girls and we were told that every home would have a small version of something like this.
Joy Funnell and I had a rapid walk around the park and were able to enjoy some of the details in the beautifully designed tea garden. The blossom was also really beautiful.
The park included a number of interesting buildings such as this small water millwhich had a stunning stand of bamboo behind it.
I then had a quick look around the museum itself. Traditional and historic Japanese crafts were on display, everything was exhibited beautifully and I wish I had had more time to study some of the items.
