I am lucky to have a friend who’s mother owns a shop in Arashiyama who does Kimono photo experiences. You get to try on Kimono and have your photo taken.
It was a wonderful opportunity to try on Kimono and let me tell you I never realised how heavy it was going to be !
Not the same as walking around in a light weight Yukata this had so many heavy layers of fabric and I wore a married ladies Kimono this had a bamboo structure at the back to keep it in place.
I own a few Kimono and yukata but I just wish I could wear them . One day my dream will be to wear one in Japan. Maybe hire one for the day
