現代に生きる!!

ってなんて便利なんでしょう。ってお話from our new lovely teacher from Australia!!

Wearing a Yukata in Mordern Japan
Recently、i had planned to go to the PL fireworks with my friends.
So we went shopping for a beautiful(but cheap)Yukata for me to wear to the fireworks.
I didnt realise they ranged in price so much. But i eventually found one which i thought was a good mix of Beauty and reasonability.
It ended up turning out that my friend couuld no longer come to it but i still wanted to wear me yukata. She was plannning on dressing me up but since she could no longer come,i wondered what to do.I didnt want all of my hopes and our long yukata shopping expidition to be for nothing, so i decided to dress MYSELF!!
the little Obachan in the shop where i bought it had thought me how to put the obi on,but i couldnt quite remember.
However,thanks to the wonders of modern technology I was able to look up You-tube and follow along with some random girl putting her yukataon.
When i finally did my Obi bow I was so impressed with myself!!!
It just made me think about how much our world os defferent to the little Ladies from the olden days wearing Kimonos-they didnt have any You-tube to help them !!


PLの花火のために浴衣を買いにいったJ. 一緒に行く友達が着せてくれるってはなしだったけど行けなくなった・・・ってことは?  そう、せっかくの浴衣を着ないのはもったいない。けど着方がわからないJは現代のテクノロジー、そうYou-Tubeを駆使してなんとか自分で着てみたそう。
なかなか上手にきれて一人大満足。昔の着物レディ達と現代でははるかに違う世界になっているのね!

ってお話でした!!
