Under the Tuscan Sun with Kimono

I traveled Toscany Italy. My tale of Genji sash and the tower of Colle di Val d'Elsa didn't mismatch, did they? Since both of them were born in Middle Ages.

I rode a bike in Kimono in Italy! This was my first time to try. If my grandma had seen me biking, she might have been so scared out!

How fun to find your blog, I love to read and watch a lot of kimono stories and yours is in English so I can understand too ^_^
Fun to see I am not the only one on a bike in kimono, is it not really "done"? look I made a small film, just for the fun of it: http://kimonoandkitsuke.blogspot.com/2008/06/tourism-two.html
What does Otaku mean? Just being curious...
I love your blog and am happy I have found it ^_^
Kind greetings,

from wiki pedia, Otaku (おたく or オタク, Otaku) is a Japanese term used to refer to people with obsessive interests, particularly anime and manga.
I think it is better to wear hakama or monpe when you bike in kimono. Bike became popular in Japan after kimono became unpopular. this might be the reason we don't bike in kimono. But as you know, it's a fun and there is no problem to bike in kimono!
