Kyoto Kimono Beauties

Posted in People, Places by tokyobling on December 12, 2012

While in Kyoto a few weeks ago I saw these two wonderfully beautiful young ladies, in the historic Gion district. Proving once again that the kimono is one of the most elegant styles of clothing in the world.

    I’ve never seen this way of doing the obi at the front. It’s super chic!

    Personally I wouldn’t agree that it’s the most elegant one, but they surely are beautiful and I love the colors of the red one! :)

    How fortunate you are to have access to not only custom and the beauty, but the freedom to express and share with dignity
