It was a rainy day.
Today is a national holiday called keiro no hi (敬老の日), Respect-for-the-Aged Day. It used be on September 15 but has been changed to the third Monday of September since 2003 because of Happy Monday System.
I went to Matsubara danchi in Saitama for the first time today to attend a seminar. It is in Soka city where is famous for rice cracker, summer kimono, and leather products.
There was an exhibition room at the first floor and I bought a small charm dog made of leather and a bag of assorted rice crackers at the break during the seminar.
The seminar started around 1 pm and lasted till 7 pm. There were about 14 participants.
After the seminar we went out for dinner and it lasted for more than two hours so I took the last train.
It was a long day.
