Today I picked up a new pair of 24cm tabi from Marukai
in preparation for my return to Okinawan dance classes.
There was a good selection of different types of tabi, but I just needed a basic pair with hook fasteners in the back. There were the “Made in Japan” ones and the “Made in China” variety. As you would expect, the tabi made in Japan were double the price of its Chinese counterparts. I opted for the cheaper pair. I wonder if I’ll notice the difference?
Who is Champuru?Aloha, I'm Donna, known everywhere on the Internet as "Champuru." I was born and raised in Hawaii. I'm a Christian. I'm married to my best friend of 18 years, we struggled with infertility and successfully conceived via IVF (and by the grace of God!) in 2008. I resigned from my coveted "secure" government job to be a work-at-home mom to my 3-year-old daughter. Using my degree in Information Technology and the skills obtained in the marketplace, I started my own business. Now, I work from home, taking clients on a part-time basis, working in my PJ's while the little one sleeps. Life isn't always easy, but it's all good.
