“Why did you start kimono dressing?”

 

Hi! This is SAORI, Kimono Coordinator. I would like to talk about myself today:)
 

I often get a question from my customers, “Why did you start kimono dressing?”

To tell you the truth, I became a kimono dresser because I wanted to get dress kimono to people overseas! Also I would like to study overseas, then started learning my own culture.
 
I have been participating volunteer kimono dressing to people from various countries such as USA, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippine, China, Congo, Thailand, France, Syria, Honduras, Australia, Vietnam, Bulgaria etc.
 

I have also visited Vietnam and Mexico for kimono dressing.
 
 

On the other day, an artist from overseas contacted me for dressing and here’s her photo:)

She was really beautiful!! Kimono is Japanese traditional clothe but anyone from other countries dress exquisitely!!!I feel always happy to see their smile!

 

Basically, traditional kimono has more soft colors but I believe people overseas tend to suit with vivid colored kimono. If you would like to try kimono dressing, come and see me! I would be very happy to help you:)
 

Thank you for reading!!

Hello!
 
I visited a craft shop & a secondhand kimono shop with Saori, our kimono coordinator:) She was looking for some materials for handmade haneri.
 
This craft shop has a good selection of products, fond some kimono clothes as well. Those are for KOMON kimono pattern designs.
 
 

 


 
 
Those are Japanese taste of patterns.

Have you seen cherry blossoms in Japan?

The cherry trees are almost in full bloom.

 

They were saying on the TV news that a Korean tourist take a day trip to view cherry blossoms in Japan!

I went view cherry blossoms with my family:)

This season may the happiest time for everyone.

Once cherry blossoms are in full bloom, they usually only last for about a week before all the petals fall to the ground.

In March & April is the season of graduation and starting new year in Japan, therefore, cherry blossoms are the symbol of new year.

 

You have chance to see Yaezakura around this weekend, and I will go to see them again! If you have a chance to visit Japan, don’t miss this ohanami season XD!
