I like Japanese culture and that’s why I brought Yukata, Kimono and hair accessories etc. from Japan.
Yukata and Kimono one similar, but there are some differences. Kimono is profound but I can’t convey that well enough in the space here.
I really like traditional Japanese things. I’ve sometimes tried to help somebody get dressed in other country. I helped my teacher put on a Yukata in December last year.
The first time I asked her “Could you choose Kimono or Yukata, a belt and accessories”.
She chose a Yukata and the pattern of the crest on the family belt. She looked so good.
She listened as if she really enjoyed my talk then I talked about history and the meaning of the patterns, color etc. I helped and talked for about 1 hour but she never looked bored.
Japanese women’s bodies are shorter height. And Yuki, which is the measurement from the center of the back of the neck to end the sleeves, is usually shorter for Japanese women (usually about 65-68cm on average).
I have helped my overseas friends to put their Yukatas on only three times in my life.
It always makes me happy when they enjoy Japanese culture.
Would you like to know more about Japan?
I hope that you get to know Japan and like it yourself.
