Held once a year in Tokyo Dome, the Tokyo Tableware Festival is what it sounds like - a week-long event devoted to dining room goods. This is a second selection of pictures, and really, I could have done another two stories, there was that much to see, and so much variety. Part 1 is here, but it's best to go to the event and see for yourself!
I came to Japan from Manchester, England in 2003, and have travelled a lot since then, around Japan and in Asia. When I'm not working, I write satire and perform stand-up comedy in and around Tokyo. Check YouTube for a taste.
