  • Janai was easy to find in the train station. We walked to a department store since it was Golden Week and the usual store was closed. She took us to different vendors to find the cloth we liked and have choices. She was very helpful. We went to a guesthouse to use the table to wrap and tie. It was a fun tour! You can spend a little or lots of money on the cloth. The cafe on the first floor of the guesthouse had a great egg sandwich and drinks.
