Gorgeous Kimono, Houmongi


Houmongi is created as “visiting dress” in the Meiji period. It has not been so long though we always think kimono is traditional stuff, don’t you think?
I recommend having Houmongi for your first kimono, as you would wear it for various occasion like wedding celemony, party or tea celemony, etc.
Go to the party with Houmongi, you can make a splash!
Choose one you really love, and try to wear it to make you special!
Tips for coordinates are: choose one with designs covered whole part for young ladies, and smaller designs or simple plain color for elderly women.

It’s cloudy in Osaka today. Temperature is 15 ℃.

Beautiful women with Gorgeous Furisode kimono everywhere in town ~ Coming of Age Day


New Year’s Holidays are over, and there were celebration for Coming of age day on January 8th. This is cerebrations for becoming adult, twenty years old in Japan.
Girls( or ladies would be appropriate!) wear Furisode kimono, Japanese traditional kimono for unmarried women. Men used to wear Japanese traditional kimono, too, but wearing European style of suit are much common these days. It’s a pity that you could see only a few people wearing Haori-Hakama (traditional formal cloth for men)
I mentioned in my web site that why Furisode has long sleeves.
Kimono with long sleeves looks wonderfully beautiful and elegant.
It is said that sleeves became longer in the Edo period and swinging long sleeves for appealing her to attract man. Love is here and there always, even the way of showing one’s heart is different.

Today, It's rain... in Osaka in Japan. buuuu~~~~
