Exhibition opening

Our tea club members were invited to opening night of an exhibition of the theme "Daughters of Sun Goddess - Japanese femininity". What a great occasion for kimono wearing ^_^

Usually when we wear a kimono it has something to do with chado and the ensembles have to be quite subdued. Now we finally had a chance to wear our fanciest kimono and obi musubi. Jouni also wore his hakama for the first time and actually dressed himself!

The exhibition was great. There were beautiful kanzashi, make up things, uchiwa, woodblock prints... It was very crowded so I didn't have a chance to get a good look on everything but I'll go again.

Kimono class

My first time being a kimono kitsuke sensei ^_^ Well, my kitsuke is still far from perfect so I'm probably no good for teaching others but I was glad to be able to share some ideas and experience I have with the girls from our chado club!

It may look like it was freezing outside but it wasn't that cold but about
3 °C. Most of us were glad to step outside for a minute - the central heating in our tea room was going like crazy.

BTW I really like this picture of Yuna-chan ^_^
