comment : Hello everyone! This picture is from my seijinshiki (coming of age day). As I live in California I was not able to formally participate in it in Japan so we ordered a kimono set from Kimono yukata market sakura and hired a Kitsuke (fitting and makeup) lady as well as a photographer from my college. I love honoring my culture and keeping formal traditions that take place back in Japan. This day was amazing and the furisode kimono was perfect! So many people complimented me, some kids took pictures with me and most people thought that I was part of the Japanese garden exhibit in Huntington Library which was funny! I hope you enjoy the picture and backstory, please vote!
