International Kimono Meeting 2

We visited a kimono rich house. She opened her, her mother's and her grandmother's tansu dresser to show kimonos handed down through the generations to us, two British and one Japanese, me.
This type of traditional Japanese house, tatami mats covers all floors and fluorescent white lights at the ceiling are decreasing. It is special opportunity to visit this type of Japanese house (for me also)
After the visit, international kimono meeting again!

Soon the meeting became kitsuke kimono wearing session.
This stripe kimono Maggie wore was so called kimono shitagi which wore under hikizuri kimono. It might be a geisha costume. I saw this type of kimono for the first time!
