Star Wars Celebration Anaheim review1

I'm going to write the review of Star Wars Celebration Anaheim.
Please join me if you like!

So, This was the place of SWCA! The Anaheim convention center.

The event was started in Thursday so we get inside Wednesday night to
prepare our booth.
The place was so huge!  When we arrived first time, we look for our 
table walking in the vacant hall.
This is where the fun begins! 

Next  morning, we had a chance to see the opening event!
So we stood in long line from 6 o'clock on Thursday morning.
We chatted with some other Star Wars was fun too!

There was a miracle happened!  At in this line, I met Mary Franklin who was 
the event lead of  LucasFilm.
(now she is working in ReedPoP)

We've been knowing each other for a long years.
She is so kind and wonderful person. I could say I'm lucky but
I felt a force because I could find her even in this thousand people!

After we receive the ticket to the hall, we went to go back to prepare the booth and came back again to the line.

Then we get in the hall finally.

The director J.J abrams  and producer Kathleen Kennedy showed up,

The new droid BB8 was so cute!

There were new troopers comes in! 

Then.......Old and New film actors gathered 
at same was fantastic!!

At the end of this stage, Han solo shows up in the new trailer....I could hardly to stop crying.
We never forget that moment. the all of hall was shaking with a feelings for the movie !

By the way, We bought our vegetable at the store called "Sprouts".
I was wondering if I could get bigger and solid vegetables...

Those vegetable were different kind that I can find in Japan but ....ummm,
I thought I could use them instead of Sweet potato and Carrot.

Now, let's start to carve! 
I had an scheduled to the Star's live at Cantina in Day2.
So I wanted to carve as many as I could at the first day!

Those were the carvings which I made at first day.
I never curved Yam potato before , but I enjoy carved them!

Our booth theme was...let's say  "Handmade Star Wars".
Here was Yuki Shibaura's paper cutout.
She is very talented person!  Here is her website.

 Takahiro Hasegawa's cubes.  These are not for sale but many people wanted to buy.
Our table was Fan booth! so he never sell them of course!

 Takae Yamauchi's handmade Star Wars stamp.
Many kids and adults tried!!! with smiling :)

At the first day, My friend Jennifer Landa visited our booth!!
We are friend since she interviewed me at the Star Wars Celebration Orlando.
She is always Star Wars Fan's Idol, I wish she'll have a wonderful baby!

Many of our friends were visited our booth.
Thank you so much everyone!! 

I feel so happy to meet with my friends and new people!
Star Wars fan's are not just a fan. 
They are family just like Mark Hamill said.
And Star Wars Celebration is the place where we can meet our Family!

Morning Market "Kadoma-mon"

On Sunday of the second week, a morning market is held every month in a local community center( city plaza).
There were many of local shop has their booth inside and outside.
Then they sell their product such as 
foods,drinks,  flowers ,accessories and some booth do some workshop. 

We go there and sell our chirashi-sushi and Inari-sushi at the market.

In this month, there was so many people and our sushi sold out within 45 minute!
Therefore I went back to my restaurant and make some more sushi
and returned to the center.

This month, I made some vegetable carving display for Happy Mother's day!

Last month, I made a Character of Kadoma-city.
His name is "GARASUKE" I made him with sweet potato.
I left the potato's skin for his cloth.

2 month ago, I displayed a beautiful(?) potato woman for white day.
the model was my favorite singer Mai Kuraki. 
Looks like not like her....but she is!!

It was so much fun to open our booth at the market!
If you live in Osaka, please visit our moning market called

The next Kadoma-mon will held in June.14th at the Kadoma City plaza.
Come and join us!
