... A stone that was in this year's exhibition was also shown in the 2015 exhibition!  The lighting and color temperature are different because the stone was presented outdoors this year. That interests me as a photographer-- the color temp has a big subjective effect on my aesthetic response. On top of that, of course, whether its in a suiban or not. The same stone but two quite distinct possibilities. Very interesting indeed :-)

Jeff observes further:
There were many many more ordinary people walking around. This year's sign posting was working better to direct lots of tourists (Japanese and foreign) from the main shrine complex down to the side hall where the indoor exhibit is held. I could see by many visitors' reactions that this was their first exposure to suiseki, and they were quite taken with its beauty.

Wearing sharp suits and ties, three guys in their 20's monitored the displays.

As for the exhibition itself, it felt fresh again. They had for the first time a bonseki piece and a really interesting suiseki in a bonseki style. There was also a stone from Antarctica!
