economic stories about Japan being tired?
Nope, a character taking a break (or creating an opportunity judging by the various people snapping a shot, or children approaching him) at the Tokyo Design Festa: the third design fair in Tokyo in as many weeks. (It must be just the bosses who are tired as the article linked above says.) This one is the flea market version compared to Design Week and Design Tide – with 7,000 participants according to the site. You could be overwhelmed by the number of stalls and the random quality (like at any flea market) or enjoy the display of the urge to create and look for some equally random gems.
