Kimono Experience


As my lovely cousin Sari and her friend Vero were visiting, I wanted them to experience something special. Airbnb has started to offer "experiences", which is a great way of exploring. I gave the 'experience of making your own kimono' as a present. Mio was a great host and I think she was almost satisfied with us. We had great fun creating the kimono and even more fun showing it off at a Japanese summer festival (matsuri). By the way, no matter how long you have lived in Japan, it is hard to keep track of all the festivals that are happening. There are several useful guides for events in Tokyo such as the ones from Metropolis or gotokyo.org
