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~~~~
