Kyoto – Kimono

While in Kyoto, I fell in love with how many young people dressed up in their kimonos to celebrate the sakura season. Not may people in Tokyo do this but in Kyoto, this practice is much more common. Girls and guys wear the kimonos. So I went on a hunt for my very first kimono and join the crowd. With great persistence, affordable vintage kimono can be bought in Kyoto. I have several yukatas, a simpler form of traditional Japanese attire for the summer (click here to my yukata) but this is my very first kimono and I love how appeasing it is for the Asian silhouette.
