"Wow!" In Kimono

by KAHOKO - Japan Licensed Guide
(189) Reviews


My name is Kahoko,an English tour guide in Tokyo.

I'm pretty excited because I'm writing my blog for the first time in my life.

I'd like to introduce something "Wow!" about Japan and Japanese every day life.

The memorial first topic is kimono, traditional Japanese clothes.   

A kimono is simply made of several rectangular parts of material.

There are no buttons or zippers. We fix it with some strings and sashes.    "Wow!"  In Kimono

Interestingly,it's very flexible regarding size.

Although my daughter is 170cm and Iam 162cm, we can wear the same kimono with a little technic.    "Wow!"  In Kimono

    "Wow!"  In KimonoMoreover,the same kimono can have quite different nuance if we choose different sashes. This is exactly a "Wow!" point.

Do you find it's interesting? If so, how about joining my tour?

You'll definitely find an exotic yourself in kimono.

See you soon.

Great day in Tokyo with Kahoko. She was able to take us to so many sites and move us around the city with ease. She was able to tailor the trip to our interests which were historical sites and gardens in the city. She helped us get a pasmo card and got us used to using the subway system.
