KIMONO AND SAKURA

I’ve been to Japan so many times (Kyoto forth time) but its only my first time to wear a kimono and see the sakuras. Nowadays people usually wear this traditional costume on some special days or festivals.  In Kyoto, a city where you can find many old traditional buildings and temples, its also kinda a trend for tourists or even local people (its quite expensive to buy your own ones) to rent kimono for a day, wander around this old city and take some nice photo shoot.

It was a cold day so I wore a haori (the cardigan I wore on top) as well.  It was a bonus to me as I got a chance to choose a different style and pattern garment for styling.  It was a very special experience and I really enjoyed it.  I think even on my fifth trip to Kyoto I still wanna do this again :)

雖然已組是第四次去京都, 穿和服郤是頭一回. 曾穿過夏天的浴衣, 但是日本傳統的和服就是美嘛~三月中的天氣還是冷, 穿好和服後還可以免費加選羽織(外套).  我選的和服顏色是粉藍, 看起來沒有別人的艷, 於是羽織我配搭了帶同粉藍而又較突出的深紫和大花.  天氣實在太冷了, 幸好有準備了圍巾, 跟和服搭起來有像千金小姐呢~(偷笑)

櫻花還沒有滿開, 這是我一直給自己再來京都的借口嗎?

下次來, 我還是要再作一次和服體驗.
