Anyway, it ended up costing 2800 yen which was pretty expensive at AUD$31 for a piece of cloth and some rope for the straps. By that stage, I was feeling pretty bad that we were probably going to be her only customers for the day or week. So I ended up buying it from her. Oh well, another pressie to lug back ...
