Theres a really awesome beauty pagent in Nihonmachi next weekend-let's go.

Nihonmachi is a great place to buy a wedding kimono, shop at the market, and Japanese hardware/garden center.

We would go to temple in Nihonmachi, then to the Atomic Cafe for lunch, then after we got shave ice, and imagawayaki to eat while we strolled along looking at beautiful art and ceramics.
