Learn from a kimono senior

To our kimono kitsuke club, a special guest came. Mrs. Arita, who has lived near my house over a half century and loves kimono.

Although she didn't wear kimono because of her injury at a leg,  she helped our wearing and gave us lots of tips of kimono coordination and seasonality. It is always fun to listen how seniors did.

Next kitsuke club will be held at her house. There is a beautiful tatami Japanese room with a fireplace for tea ceremony. Japanese embroidery hanging scrolls she hand-sewed are on the wall. We can't wait to see her kimono and obi collections!
