Kazuko’s Kimono Story (Part 1)



I got this uchikake in Fukuoka. On the way to visit my father’s grave, I found this in the entrance of a second hand shop by chance. I felt it was a pity that it should be there, and I bought it for ¥3,000, I had no idea how to use it though.

This is not as bold as many of them, but it is just good for displaying. I cooked my home town osechi-ryori (new year’s cooking) and I hung the uchikake up on New Year’s Days, every year. I would like to pass down Japanese traditional culture including this uchikake and osechi-ryori to my three daughters. If they do not have interest in them now, I hope this will help them in the future.
