Annual Ibaraki Artifact Exhibit at Seibu
* Exhibit *
The 22nd Ibaraki Artifact Exhibit (茨城県郷土工芸品展) will be held again at Tsukuba Seibu from August 10 to 15. Please also see my post titled, “Ibaraki Artifact Exhibit at Seibu” from last year for reference.
Selected artifacts from all over Ibaraki will be on display/sale, and you’ll have chances to talk to craftspeople and watch them work on their handiwork. Please see “popular attraction” page on Ibaraki Travel Information website (English). All the artifacts on this page, except Kagami Crystal, will be coming to Seibu this weekend. This year, there will be free tea ceremonies that you can participate in every 30minutes between 11am and 6pm on Sunday.
There will be lots of sightseeing brochures and flyers that you can pick up, so if you are trying to decide where to go & what to do this fall, don’t forget to stop by at the tourist information table.
* Books! Books! Books! *
What’s exciting is that Libro’s new and used book fair will also be held on the same floor during this exhibit this year! They usually have a good selection of English and other foreign language books and some videos, so I think it’s worth a look if you are not in a hurry.
