Yukiko’s Story 1

When I was 28 years old, my mother bought this homongi for me when we went out to watch a play together. At that point in time, I did not have a homongi. She found this at a kimono shop first and then recommended it to me. I was so happy because I liked the soft and quiet colors and patterns. My mother understood me well. I had been given some kimono from my mother already, but it was the first time she bought a kimono for me. This is very special for me. My mother dressed me in it when I attended a friends’ wedding ceremony and also for the Noh theater. Recently, I dressed in it to celebrate my younger sister’s daughter’s 7,5,3 ceremony. It made me so happy.
