Atsuko – Problems

Atsuko (daughter) :I have a problem that many women my age have, women in their fifties and sixties. Many of us don’t wear kimono, and we have a problem about knowing what to do with our mother’s kimono. I have not married, so I don’t have daughters and neither does my brother. Even people who have daughters say the daughters often don’t want these kimono from the family chest. I don’t want to just sell them, but they take a lot of space. There are some messages I found in the collection, pieces of paper that say how the kimono are to be disposed of, so my mother has already given away many kimono to people who would like to have them.
