Cultural Windows

Kimono Culture

Wearable art that also requires an artful skill to adorn oneself with, the image of the kimono is so ingrained into Japanese culture that even though the garments hail from long ago, they persist on into the present day and beyond. Choose your favorite colors and designs, and listen to the teachers as they tell you about the significance of each while showing you the how and why of the proper way to wear the traditional gown. Then, spend an afternoon on the town in full dress, letting your imagination take you through stories of Japan’s past.
