Kimono Dressing

In the old days in Japan, mothers taught their daughters how to wear kimono. Nowadays, it is quite common to go to a dressing class to learn how to wear kimono, as kimono is no longer the everyday attire in Japan.

You will learn how to wear kimono including explanation of the accessories and preparation needed for dressing and how to tie obi. You will practice repeatedly throughout the course. For those interested, instructions on how to make some of the accessories can be provided after class.

Items needed for this course are:
Kimono, Obi, Obijime, Obiage, Obimakura, Jyuban Hadagi, Koshimaki, Datejime, Koshihimo (2)
