"Wow!" In Kimono

by KAHOKO

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.

Wonderful little restaurants, peaceful parks, an amazing graveyard, an incredible museum, a great open market and the shimbbashi crossing experience we had such an amazing day. She also helped us plan out itineraries for two days...

We arranged a private tour with Kahoko for two adults and two kids (ages 4 years and 3 months). Given the age of our kids, we knew we would need to bring our stroller with us. In advance of our tour, Kahoko located all the elevators in the subway stations so that we could travel with our stroller. She even pushed the stroller with one hand while she held an umbrella in her other hand as we expl...

Kahoko was a wonderful tour guide. My husband and I had a 11 hour layover in Tokyo on our way home. Prior to meeting up she gave us all the tips on how to navigate the airport and what train to take into the city. Once we got there she gave us a fantastic tour of the city, we hit up spots all over town! We could not believe how well organized she was, it was incredible. If you have the chance do y...

Kahoko was excellent. We had a fabulous day seeing all the best sights in Tokyo. She made getting around a huge city manageable. There is no way we could have seen all the great sights on our own, let alone in one day. Kahoko knows Tokyo really well and got us around the city through the Metro system very efficiently. Kahoko speaks English well (teaches English part-time). She is very personable...

We had a fantastic full day in Tokyo with Kahoko. Her English is excellent, but most importantly she is such a lovely person to be with and very knowledgeable on many different topics. We managed to cover quite a few places during our time with Kahoko, as she took us not only to some of the touristic sites but also away from the beaten tracks. The suggestions she gave at the end of the day helped ...
