A Picture to Remember Japan By

Author: Author Unknown, Issue: April 2000, Topic: Events, Location: Tsukuba City

How would like to have an opportunity to have your picture taken wearing a Japanese traditional kimono? Your chance is coming up in May. All you have to do is call ahead of time and reserve your place. This is a great opportunity for the international community as a similar picture taken at a regular studio would involve costs of 30 to 40 thousand yen.

For this event, however, you will be provided with a furisode, the best formal kimono of the type used in the January coming of age ceremony. Putting on a kimono is no easy task and even Japanese need professional assistance. But never fear, for a professional kimono instructor will be on hand to help you put on the kimono. Please bring with your camera and anyone who you want to show off to in your beautiful kimono. It will be fun!

DATE: MAY 20th(Sat) 2000
TIME: 10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m.
Place: Ninomiya Public Hall
Fee: 300 yen
Please bring your own camera and wear white socks and a T-shirt or some other top with a low neckline.

Kimono Instructor: H. Yotsuya
Supported by Tsukuba Professional Language Japanese Teachers Association
Please contact Suzuki by FAX/TEL 0298-53-8201 or email garden[at]intio.or.jp.
