"Wow!" In Kimono

by KAHOKO - Japan Licensed Guide
(145) Reviews

Hello.

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.

Kahoko was great to work with and very thoughtful in organizing our tour. She is a wealth of information and shared great insight, facts, and knowledge about Tokyo and all the landmarks we visited.

Kahoko was our guide for a 7 hour personalized walking tour of Tokyo in late November. We recommend her unconditionally as an outstanding, highly qualified and gracious professional with very strong language and communication skills.

Note that three months notice is needed for this treat. It is booked well in advance by people in the know. Kahoko showed ...

I had a half day tour of Kamakura with Kahoko and it was awesome! From the very beginning Kahoko was very responsive and focused on meeting my needs as far what I wanted to see in Kamakura in a short period of time.
