I fell in love with Japanese kimono since last year. Kimono can be very expensive so I bought the cheaper version - yukata 浴衣。I tried very hard to learn how to wear a yukata myself and tie the obi 帯.
I am a 100% cat lady, so the first piece of yukata I bought is full of cats. There are numerous ways to tie an obi, in order to show the cat pattern on my obi I pick this obi pattern and learned very hard to tie it.
I even bought a cat pattern bag to match with my cat yukata !
Walking around in the traditional streets of Arima Onsen with this outfit was so enjoyable.
