Rabbit-Fest 2006

Did I mention that Minako keeps a pet rabbit? I'll have to post some pics of him someday. He's very cute. In the meantime, here are a pair of photos from the rabbit fair we attended this past weekend down in Yokohama. First time I'd been, although Minako was there last year as well, collecting free samples and buying merchandise discounted for the show. Interesting event, but I can't see myself shelling out the big yen for a bunny any time soon. Now a chicken, maybe.

After the show we had a nosh and did a little shopping in Yokohama. Definitely an interesting city. Lots of variety, including a Chinatown bustling with tourists and a hefty helping of Western flavor.

Also, completely by accident, we happened upon an interesting museum, bankART, which was having a modern noh performance. We didn't have the energy to attend it, but we did peruse their bookshop. Wherein I found a book of works by Yukinori Yanagi. First time for me to learn about him. Fantastic stuff, especially his ant farms. Difficult to find images on the net that convey how cool these flag ant farms appeared even in the book.

The bunny is cute. Are Japanese bunnies all yellow?!

Do you want to make chicken soup out of your chicken? I suppose you could be feeding the starving animal and mumbling Yummy! at the same time.

I wouldn't say he's quite yellow...orange maybe. Anyway, no, most rabbits here are not that color. They tend to be brown, black, gray, or a mix of those. Minako's is black and several shades of gray.

I would eventually make chicken soup out of it, when it reached old age. First I would have many fresh eggs. It would mostly just be a pet though. One chicken doesn't go far as food y'know. Although I could probably fit several birds on my balcony...

I'm allergic to rabbits. It is violent and unkind. Who knew?
