    Nice set. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that many Japanese flags at one time. It seems to be a touchy subject for many.

    Thank you Mike. They give the flags out as you enter the grounds. I would love to see the stock of the printing house that puts them together.
    And yes, a touchy subject indeed.
