Thanks for putting up the temporary website link to the 2010 Bath Japanese Festival.

Rachel and myself are the co-organisers, but it is also a collaboration between Bath U.K.; Tokyo; Akita; and New York.

A respected New York artist is working on our logo as I speak. ;-)

There will be Contemporary Japanese bookmaking and art; origami; films; haiku and renga activities and lots more!

We have a Facebook Page as well and will start posting more events on the temporary website; Facebook; and Twitter.

Bear with us, we're on Tokyo; New York and Bath U.K. timezones! ;-)

all my best,

Alan
