Wanna look like a kawaii (cute) Japanese? Put on a Kimono and you will get the attention!

Kimono is a traditional attire often worn during special occasions. There are many types of kimonos, each worn by different stages of women (married or unmarried), or for different occasions. So make sure you choose the right one!

I'm wearing a Furisode, the most formal style of kimono worn by young unmarried ladies in Japan. The special feature of Furisode is the long sleeves at the sides. The whole garment is fully covered by colourful patterns, and often in bright colours, resembles youthfulness.

The wearing of kimono is quite complicated! Under that bright golden-yellow outer coat, hidden layers and layers of clothes and belts around the waist! It has to be assisted by a helper, so that the clothes can be tightly secured at the fixed spots.

Kimonos worn by my fellow friends include those for wedding ceremony and for Ugo's traditional dance "Nishimonai Bon".


Kimono is a MUST-TRY once in a lifetime and once in Japan!
