 Japanese Dress
 Enjoying the experience

I had countless unforgettable moments during my Japan Trip but having to wore the Kimono dress was one of it. Thank you to Machi-mama for sharing her expertise and articulately dressing me without any hesitation and for free.

The kimono is a Japanese traditional garment. The word "kimono", which actually means a "thing to wear" (ki "wear" and mono "thing"), has come to denote these full-length robes. The standard plural of the word kimono in English is kimonos, but the unmarked Japanese plural kimono is also sometimes used. Kimono is always used in important festival or formal moments, it is the representative of polite and a very formal clothing. Kimono are T-shaped, straight-lined robes worn so that the hem falls to the ankle, with attached collars and long, wide sleeves Kimono are wrapped around the body, always with the left side over the right (except when dressing the dead for burial) and secured by a sash called an obi which is tied at the back. Kimono are generally worn with traditional footwear  and split-toe sock. (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kimono)
