Today, I wore a yukata for a festival held in my neighborhood.
A yukata is a sort of kimono, but it's more casual and usually worn in summertime.
Tied with an obi (a sash), and worn with a pair of geta (sandals).
Nowadays most of the girls can't wear these costumes on their own,
but it's not too hard if you learn some technics.
It's a part of Japanese culture, but I should say...... it's just clothing.
So I'd be really glad if you get interested....and try one sometime like this.
Here's a tutorial for wearing a yukata.
And here's a web-store where you can get them.
yukata: tsumori chisato(here: can be shipped internationally!)
