All finished. Something to take home.

One more done

The completed product.

First finished and a good result.

Tatami-beri

Concentration levels are up as the focus is on aligning the tape and the small nails so that the edge will be square.

Tatami-beri factory

Second stop today is a tatami-beri factory. This is the woven edge tape for tatami mats. The group has a chance to try their hand at making mini-tatami stands with edge-tape  their own chosing. The instructor speaks Japanese only so  some concentration is needed.

Tuesday morning

Just waiting for one more before we leave for the day's activities. Very cold this morning. About 0C with  cold breeze. Unusual for this time of year.
