Yukiko’s Kimono Story (Part 4)


This is the first and only kimono that I bought by myself. I wanted a bold and bright polyester kimono for my work as a guide. Its really suitable for that and I wear it a lot. It is also the first time I’ve worn a ready-made kimono and it is a bit hard to put on and wear beautifully because it’s bigger than my real kimono size. I have been so lucky to have kimono tailored to my size, or my mother’s kimono, and she is the same size as me. Honestly I would really like to wear and show my beautifully dyed authentic silk kimono to foreign people when I am guiding, but I am afraid to get them dirty. I usually wear this polyester kimono or this wool kimono when I guide them.
