Tottori sand dune sand sculpture exhibition 鳥取砂丘砂の彫刻 2010

I traveled to Tottori for a couple of days, and had a chance to see Sand sculpture, I have been wanting to see. This exhibition has been held for many years already, and this year, the theme was Africa. The artists were selected from many countries around the world.

Tottori sand dune ahead is the Japan Sea

Many people hike up there, and over the hill you can do sand boarding, and camel ride.

Some people are playing with kites.

An orangutan

History of exploring Africa

I like the 3Dness of the jeep.

Gathering all African animals. It seems hard to make.

What are they looking?

Diva is watching them working...

Mr. Nelson Mandela.

Here is the interior of the exhibition.

They are also some outside exhibition.

All kinds of African masks. Interesting cultural display.

This is another artists more like western style and story by the exit door.

Kuromon Market, Osaka, 12/29/09'

12/29/09', I went to Kuromon Market (黒門市場)Osaka. At the end of the year, people go to the market to buy New Year food. Especially this market is popular for selling, Fugu fish (globefish) It is a poisonous, and need a license to fish and cook. People in Osaka, Kyusyu area eat the globefish soup. (I don't. It is kind of grotesque.)
