Just our thing

Jennifer over at Moving Hands has just posted about a book she picked up at her local library in Tokyo.

The book is a guide to all the crafty stores to be found around Tokyo. What a lovely idea. It looks like it's all in Japanese, which might not help most of us, but the pictures look enticing nonetheless.

Now I'd love a local library where Japanese craft books were available in abundance to borrow.
