My Red Yukata


While walking around Tokyo this summer, I saw some girls who were wearing yukata, which are summer kimonos. There were two girls wearing a yukata in a museum. I noticed they were wearing a bag over their shoulder, which is more trendy than holding it. I also saw three girls wearing a yukata and moving to the Motown music in a bar. When my family and I went to Shinjuku for dinner, I wore a yukata . Before that, I decorated my flower bed in the home office with ornamental herbs .

今年の夏は浴衣の女の子をよく見かけました。前回の記事の世田谷文学館でも、可愛い女の子が二人浴衣姿で、ハンドバッグを肩にかけているのがお洒落でしたよ。先日は、六本木のバーでも女の子が三人浴衣姿で踊っていました。私は、家族で焼肉を食べに新宿へ行く時に浴衣で出かけてみました、その前に、庭で大きくなりすぎたセージを切って、お部屋に飾りました。











This red arch in the entrance of Kabukicho in Shinjuku goes well with a red outfit. Kabukicho is somewhat dangerous area, but the place I was in was safe. Anyway, I will perform the dance for the Hachiman shrine festival on September 7th, at 6:00 pm. You can see my dancing in 2018, 2017, 2016.

新宿歌舞伎町一番街の赤いアーチと赤いコーディネイトはよく似合います。お洒落着物イズム10の8月のコラムも更新したので、そちらも一緒にお楽しみくださいませ。毎年恒例の北澤八幡さまの奉納舞は、今年は9月7日(土)の午後6時から、雨天決行です。詳細はこちらで。みなさまのお越しを心よりお待ちしております。私の絵が描かれた絵馬もおすすめです。みなさまのお願い事が叶いますよう、心をこめて舞わせていただきます。どうぞよろしくお願いいたします。これまでの舞台の様子はこちらです。2018, 2017, 2016.

  2. You look wonderful in your yukata. I also like the white bag and flip flop sandals you wore with it. The floral print on your summer kimono is very pretty, it looks a bit 3D. Your belt is lovely as well. I really like this shade of red. For me red is the colour of happiness.

    I also enjoyed seeing your illustrations and flowers. It is great you're doing a dance performance, I wish I could see it.

  11. Beautiful pictures Akiko!

    Didn't know the name of the summer version kimono, it is a piece of art and the pictures you took of it are like a fashion editorial... Love the cool detail you add with the straw bag!
