Kimono

Have you ever worn kimono

If you haven’t, why don’t you try it on once
However, you don’t need to buy it.
Because we have a nice kimono rental shop in Kurashiki

 
Here’s ‘Kurashiki Kimono Komachi’ near JR Kurashiki station.

You can rent not only kimono but also other accessories, such as bags and shoes.
It offers many kinds of designs, so I'm sure you'll find something that you will like


By the way, kimono for women are tend to be more colourful and vivid than men’s kimono. I got an impression that women’s Kimono express the elegance and the beauty, on the other hand, men’s Kimono express the dignity.


To kick off, choose your favorite colour and pattern.

The colour that suits you is different from your favorite colour sometimes.
Choose the colour which makes your face look bright or healthy.

There are so many different patterns in kimono.
The motifs feature seasonal plants, flowers, animals (or imaginary animals) and traditional patterns.

We came across unique kimono made of denim.
Normally, the denim isn’t used for kimono.
However, this kimono is using the denim from Kojima region in Kurashiki City which is really soft and durable.

Apparently, those Kimono were send to a fashion show in France last year, and it received a great deal of attention there. 


Kimono are simple, straight-seamed garments.
They are worn wrapped left side over right and fastened with a belt called ‘obi’.
For that reason, kimono are available in most of the sizes.


Although, the only problem is that it’s not easy to put on by yourself.
Even most of Japanese women don’t know how to ware it.
But, don’t worry A professional Kimono fitter helps you here.


Let’s try
First, put on ‘jyuban’, an underwear for Kimono.


Next, decide the length of Kimono.
It seems to be too long now, but it can be altered for height later.
 

Put on kimono and wrap it around your body. Then, secure with a sash.

Please make sure that put left side over right side.
Since the opposite is the same way as ‘shini-shozoku’ , clothing for dead person


To make the length shorter, tuck up Kimono and secure it with a sash again.
It’s called ‘ohashori’

It’s almost done
At last, put on obi and tighten it.

Obi works as not only a belt, but also an accessory
So, there’s a large variety of the way to tie it

When you wear kimono, you put on tabi (two-fingered socks)’ and zouri (Japanese traditional shoes)’.

Each item has beautiful patterns on it.
So, you can enjoy a combination of colours and patterns that conjured up images of the season.
 

The choice of accessories, such as combs, pins worn in the hair, and belts are also important.

We also wore haori (jacket)’ and shawls because it’s too cold outside

It took about 20min to finish changing
We look nice in kimono  …what do you think

You might find that you can’t move your legs and arms freely because kimono is too tight. However, it’ll get easier and you’ll get used to it soon.


Today, I’ll show you some nice spots in Kurashiki which go well with kimono.
If you ask me, Kurashiki is the best place to stroll wearing Kimono, since the historic townscape of Kurashiki really matches the traditional costume.
