Yukiko’s Kimono Story (Part 2)


This plain colored kimono was given to be my mother when I graduated from university. I was given several kimono by my mother but this was the first one. I wore this kimono with a hakama at the graduation ceremony. Apart from the very formal kimono for the special ceremonies, and some casual wool kimono, I didn’t have any other ordinary silk kimono, so I consider the first kimono of my own. My mother wore this on ceremonies during my elementary school days. I have never had the chance to wear it again after graduating university, but this kimono embodies special memories for me.
