The best present!
This is a small appreciation post for my Eikaiwa student, Takako.
If you have read my blog before you will know that I often teach a Japanese woman who is a master at Japanese tea ceremony and a lover of traditional culture such as yukata.
Matsuri season was in full swing so one lesson, as a surprise, she brought me one of her yukata as a present!
This was a very rare and special yukata, made from special cloth and a very rare design - red and blue English roses!
Takako also loves English culture and English flowers~
It so happens that my work friend Masato is in a yukata circle, so for her next lesson we both wore yukata and I taught a special yukata themed lesson.
It turns out that male obis, although they look simpler are a lot more complicated to tie!
