Last month I had the chance to go to Osaka and model for a Kimono company called "Nadeshiko".
If you pass their shop front, you might see me smiling from the banner in a light blue furisode, or if you get your hands on their catalogue, you will see me wearing a beautiful black wedding kimono!

Behind The Scenes
I love wearing yukata (summer kimono, that's really easy to put on), but I didn't have many opportunities to wear mine during summer either! Full kimono sets are really heavy, and really difficult to walk in, but it's worth trying, even if you are just in Japan for a holiday. There are many kimono rental shops and sites, and even salons that do your hair, make up and help you put on the kimono. In Tokyo there are a lot of shops around Asakusa that offer English support, so you can order before your trip and rent your kimono experience while you are in Japan.
