(Article originally posted in 2014.)
We asked Ms. Kimura to give us "a small lecture in ginza."
The form of kimono is same for all, from girls and boys to grand mothers. So colors and motifs are even more important, which can express age, occasion or your position or relation. Wearing kimono is not to please your ego, but is to dress with perfected motifs of Japan to express heartfelt congratulations, receive energy of flowers of plants, and convey the season. Performing arts start from facing gods, the colors of kimono used in performances have significance, etc. When she was small she had lived abroad. At that time she learned about differences of western clothing and kimono. When she was dressed in kimono with his father, he scolded her for an ensemble she had selected.
Hard to believe she is 94 years old, she has very rational and practical ideas with abundant sense of humor. How to deal with sweat in kimono, select kimono to fit you... she answered to each one of our questions with kind consideration. With her love of kimono and dedication to colors, Ms. Kimura exuded an aura of happiness.
