I am sorry to hear you are suffering from plantar fasciitis while trying to enjoy Kokufu ten.
Try to find a product called "Super feet". They may carry them in stores carrying high end running shoes. In the US they are about $35 a pair.
They are a special foot bed that adjusts to your foot and have been a like a miracle for many people myself included. Good luck!
I just checked their website and there are stores all over Tokyo that carry them.
Thanks for the tip. I'll be looking for some type of insole because walking around Tokyo is no joke and I grew up in Paris which also involves quite a bit of walking but the Parisian Subway system I feel is much more efficient.
I have attached a picture of ume pre-bonsai that won't involve having to trade first-borns since they are only $80 each
Here are a few of the indoor sale area. Gotta say that some of the trees there were better than the trees at Kokufu itself.
I'm going back to the green club tomorrow early morning to buy Japanese Tools and a pot. I bought some cheap pots from the Kinbon booth but they're all made in China. The japanese pots are quite expensive so I'm taking my time.
