A Luxurious Obi (kimono belt) From A Friend Of A Friend

Hello everyone! I hope you are fine in the beginning of June! Today's blog is about a memento from a friend of a friend. The memento is this luxurious obi (kimono belt). The friend of mine told me, "This obi is from F chan, and she quickly ordered luxury kimono or obi whenever she really loved them! She was so cool!"


F chan's obi came to my home about a year ago, and it reminds me of F chan even though we have never seen. The obi is great and special, so I couldn't decide how to style with it, and I have been looking at it in wonder long time. At last, I thought about a better outfit and decide the day to go to Meguro sky garden with my son! I wrapped the obi talking to F chan's obi. When I put the obi on a sofa, I said to the obi, "Please wait here." When I was wrapping it, I asked her inside the obi, " Is it right?" The obi is really light and soft. It makes me feel luxurious...However an accident happed! A basting thread of a kimono got caught in a zipper of a bag. I hadn't noticed the thread even though I wear the kimono every year. Anyway, the garden is so beautiful! It takes me only 30 minutes on foot. I felt like that F chan also loved the garden! If you come to Tokyo, you should visit the garden<3
