Arita

What happens when you pack 50 ladies on board Β a bus and that too without their kids….. πŸ˜›
Its commotion confounded and thats what exactly happened today. 50 of us headed towards Arita, the Porcelain town. This is an annual Porcelain fair which happens during the golden week from 29th April – 5th May at Arita. More than 600 shops sell porcelain wares. They are certainly a beauty to set your eyes on but the more interesting aspect here is you can bargain :P. Funny as it might sound, but Japan doesn’t have much of bargaining places and this is one of them. So, feast your eyes to the rich stuff all along the way and bargain too. (Wow I felt so happy I could bargain after a long long time :P). I was slightly taken aback with the prices with some vases priced upto 2-3 lakh yen πŸ™‚ and so I went looking for some cheap and pretty stuff. Β 

So, here you go feast yourself as they are a real beauty (Forgive me for my photography am not that good at it :P)

  1. They are just too beautiful! loved every single pic and wish i could go there too! without samhith, of course…. that would be like taking a bull into a china shop!

  2. Thanks Anu. I knew the ladies would love this :).
    Actually Samhith would get bored there…. no amusement for kids …. Its just porcelain, porcelain and porcelain everywhere πŸ˜› ….

  3. The ladies would have freaked out there, I presume. So, what did u buy ???? Those 200 yen ones ????? Or the vases which cost a bomb ?????

  4. ha ha yes they did. One lady bought two suitcases full of things….. πŸ™‚
    I stuck to the 200 ones… the bomb well that will cause a bomb to explode inside me πŸ™‚
