Ebizo selling bottled tea at vending machine in Ni-chome

Disgraced and barely repentant kabuki actor Ebizo still has some promotional activities. I found him in Ni-chome selling bottled tea at a vending machine. I love how Japanese consumer products still use famous actors and celebrities in Japanese costume in wood houses or by bamboo forests. Very nostalgic and sexy!

Setting up the family art exhibit

Kuges’ art show Haru invitation

Today I helped Shu and his parents set up their Haru exhibit which opens tomorrow, combining Shu’s illustrations with his parents ceramics. The two sisters who run the gallery offered us tea after we finished unpacking and displaying all the art.

Here’s the image from the invitation:
