I went to Tokyo with my Sakhalin friend. We had some adventures in metro and Disney Sea. Tokyo subway is complicated. There are local, rapid and express trains stopping at one station. They take you to the different destinations and you are not sure about the right train. Finally we managed with it.

To my surprise I was the first and the only eropean at the event. I saw many beautiful works at the contest place. Japanese artists combine thai and japanese styles to get amazing designs. You can check the winner works at TCA page below (please note that the first three photos are gold, silver and bronze medals, all other photos are special prizes):
|Contest place. 1 hour and 10 minutes to carve 2 pieces from a melon and a watermelon|
|40 participants and much more visitors|
I met my Facebook friends at the contest!! I love such moments. We had a nice talk with the girls

I bought books, soap and knives there. I would like to go to Tokyo more often to learn a fine art of japanese carving.
