I haven’t gotten a chance to get to my “class” much, as everyone is very busy this fall, but I did get a chance last month to go! Kenji and I had gone with Scott to a fun flea market one early Sunday, and had met one of my kimono teachers, Kanda-sensei, there unexpectedly! She helped me pick out a new obi or two, then organized a date I could come practice. I also brought my new hakama and ko-furisode to try on.
Putting on the hakama
My hakama and ko-furisode. Unfortunately, the hakama is a tiny bit too short (according to my teachers), so I need to let the hem down a bit. Luckily that is easily fixed, and then I plan to wear it to Ono’s graduation in March!
Hopefully will get more chances for kimono this year!
