Small stylish tradition



The children are dressed up with the Yukata.
It is said that the yukata was created in the
Heian period about 1000 years ago.

You may have worn it in the Japanese hotel.




The scenes and manners of the Japanese summer.
Today is the
Bon festival dance meet (Bon Odori).
The children have the traditional toy.

The warm night has been passing coolly, and cheerfully...




They harmonize with various folk songs and dance.
The friends enjoy them together.

This happy night will become their good memory...

  21. What precious children in the gloriously colored yukatas. I would have loved to see this. When I spoke at Shiga Medical College, my friend, Dr. Takase, the female medical examiner, had all the women faculty wear yakatas and she presented one to me and my colleague - and had two ladies come to help us dress. It was such a wonderful evening and dinner afterwards.
