Kimono Yukata Contest

This is a fun contest, thank you for hosting it! I would love to win and buy another kimono from your wonderful website! :) Comment: Photo of me taken by a dear friend at the vintage subway museum in New York City Manhattan :) Best regards,

Kimono Yukata Contest

You have to try wearing a yukata once in your life! Wearing yukata is so much fun to do! I like to wear it on my birthday or at a festival in USA. Its very easy to wear and clean! Comfortable cotton fabric!

Kimono Yukata Contest

Kimono is a very comfortable type of clothing. There are several combinations (with or without hakama, for example) you can use it depending on the weather and occasion. It is impossible to wear a kimono and not feel special, elegant. The fabric is so high-quality, it is so full of details, that is hard to choose if you want to wear it or just spread it on your bed and admire it. I loved my kimono and I am sure you will love to wear a kimono too! And do not worry: it is not that difficult to wear (see videos available in the Kimono Yukata Market Sakura website). You will get the hang of it in no time!

This is a photo of my kids celebrating their school"s International Night. They are one quarter Japanese and wanted to learn more about Japan and where their grandpa and great grandparents came from!

Kimono Yukata Contest

For my wedding, I was looking for attire fit for a wedding, but also fun and original. I decided to wear a yukata, instead of a traditional wedding dress. The yukata was the perfect choice for me and also reflected my Japanese heritage. In this picture, I am moments away from heading down the aisle to join my soon to be husband!

Kimono Yukata Contest

Before putting on a kimono or yukata I would recommend watching a video about how to wrap it. The Sakura Market also provides a good video for it. Because folding it left over right or right over left has a different meaning in Japan! But if you are interested, then please try out wearing one, it feels very special and is a lot of fun

It is not so difficult to put it on! We love to wear Kimono to show our heritage :)
