{ town mouse } Hyper Japan…

At the invitation of a Japanese journalist friend, my stepmum and I popped into the Hyper Japan festival on Brick Lane yesterday and found ourselves in the middle of a Manga fan convention (Jonathon Ross was there, in his element!). There were Manga characters come to life (known as cosplay) and at every turn were stands heaving under books, action figures and costume accessories much to the delight of the eclectic crowds. I must confess that the main reason I had ventured that far east (and on a sunday!!) was the promise of sushi, so once we’d had our fill we wandered around some of the other stalls and I had my name painted onto a paper fan…
It’s actually the phonetic spelling of my name, so what it says is “kay tuh”.
I was transfixed by the calligrapher and her brush. The movements and strokes are so alien to the western hand, it was beautiful to watch.
