Yesterday I had a great time learning how to wear a Yukata!
I definitely underestimated how difficult it is to correctly wear a Yukata.
I now have a great appreciation for this practice.
Everyone there was very friendly and helpful in properly teaching us this traditional Japanese art.
I’m looking forward to wearing Yukata again, and this time, putting it on myself!
I had a lot of fun visiting the Kimono Club, where I got to try on a yukata!
The first time I tried it on, the club members helped me and demonstrated how to wear it.
After that, they had me (with some assistance) try it on myself!
The steps in wearing a kimono or yukata were more complicated than I expected (so many layers!),
but I think I was able to get by with the guidance of the nice Kimono Club members.
(One of them was also a Shrine Maiden which I thought that was really cool!)
I especially liked tying the obi (belt) into a bow!
The club members also practiced their English with us, and demonstrated traditional Japanese bowing.
