Kakita's Grand Opening

Marcell finally had the grand opening party of his shop, Kakita's, which specializes in Japanese goods, including incredibly beautiful microprim kanzashi hair ornaments and color changing geta shoes. I put on my best autumn kimono and popped in... Many of his friends and colleagues from SL's various geisha okiyas and tea houses stopped through...
There were performances and prizes given out. I won two for answering the following questions correctly: "Name the 4 main stages of a geisha's training" (shikomi, minarai, maiko, geisha) and "What was the given name of the first Shogun of the Tokugawa era" (Ieyasu). It was very nice and the performances were lovely.
