- Hello, I bought a yukata to wear at my local sakura matsuri here in nyc, usa. I loved it! The print and colors of the yukata are beautiful. I also loved my geta and obi set =^.^= I was so happy to wear yukata! Thank you so much
- We wore it when we went to our local Sakura Matsuri here in New York (Brooklyn Botanical Garden) last April 30. A lot of people took photos of us and with us, adoring how beautiful our yakatas were! We both loved it!
- I did wear the Yukata I got from Yukata Kimono Market Sakura, when I went Cherry Blossom viewing in Washington D.C. I took a lot of pictures and all the people saw my pic said the Yukata is beautiful!
- Everyone who saw it complimented me and asked where I got it from. I directed them all to you.
- At the Sakura-Festival in Hamburg, Germany. It was a great evening and lots of fun. Thank you for this wonderful Kimono! Domo arigato gozaimasu!

How to find cherry blossoms
Place a search on the Internet with "Name of your country" + "cherry blossom"
Use or wear pink, white or cherry blossom patterned items. For example, in your kimono, yukata, obi belt, sandals, pouch or bag. By doing so, you will match the blossoms around you.
Take measures against the cold by wearing undergarments, tabi socks, a haori jacket (only with a kimono), and a Japanese patterned or pink muffler.
A yukata is fine to wear for cherry blossom viewing, but a kimono is warmer because it is lined and made of silk.
Place your personal items like keys and money in a kimono bag or kinchaku pouch. A regular handbag will clash with a traditional kimono or yukata.
