Wearing A 30 Years Old Traditional Kimono



I wanted to post this blog for a long time but due to some reasons, I could not post. This is one of my best memory in Japan and also very special to me. I am wearing a Japanese Kimono which is very special to me. The lady who owns this Kimono is actually my Japanese teacher, but she calls me her Indian daughter and I call her my Japanese mother. She wore this Kimono when she turned the twenty, and her daughter wore the same Kimono when she turned twenty.
Japan has a very old tradition for women, they wear Kimono when they turn twenty as their twentieth ceremony, that's why this Kimono is very special. My Japanese mother wanted me to wear her own Kimono when I was new to Japan. She is a very kind, humble and very nice person. Apart from my mom, she is the best lady I have ever met in my entire life, I can not explain her in the words, but I really adore her.
The Kimono is more than 30 years old but it looks like a new one and also royal and traditional. It has made with a pure silk fabric and it has two layers, the inner part of it is a white plain material and the outer part is a very beautiful silk material with orange floral print on it. It has a long sleeve which is the sign of an unmarried girl in Japan.
The wide belt I am wearing on my waist called OBI, it gives a support of entire dress and also makes it look beautiful. It takes a long time to tie and feels very tight on the waist. I am also wearing the traditional Kimono wooden footwear and white socks.
My hairstyle is done by my teacher's daughter who is also my very good friend, she has used beautiful matching orange hair accessories for styling my hair.

The Golden Week

It's Monday and I am getting back to my work again after 9 days of holiday. At the end of the April, Japan has almost a week holiday called "Golden Week" but for me, it wasn't a golden week, it was a diamond week as I enjoyed this holiday. At the beginning of the holidays, I had a small trip at Tottori and then for next five days, I just stayed at my Japanese apartment and did nothing, except eating, sleeping and watching lots of movies on NETFLIX with some cups of Chai and lots of Indian snacks, at the end of the holiday, I watched my first movie in Japanese theatre (Avengers- Infinity War) with a bucket of popcorn and cold drinks, had a sweet dinner on weekend night with a glass of red wine.
My holiday ends with lots of memories and fun, now I am back to work with a fully fresh mind and a new excitement. I am already waiting for my next long holiday in July, till then no more blogging and Instagram except weekend.

Rose Gold Obsession

I have always been a big fan of Black color. If you will see my old pictures on Facebook, you will find all my pictures in Black clothes. I always loved black for my clothing.
Well, things Changed, I changed and I became obsessed with Rose Gold. Not only for clothing but for anything I just love the color and its different shades (including peach and light pink). From the curtain to door mate, all I have in the peach shade, from my coffee mug to water bottle all I have in a monochrome of peach and rose gold. From my mobile phone (iPhone 7 Plus) to my wallet, all I have in rose gold. All I want to say that I am just crazy about the monochrome shades of Rose gold and I just love these shades. I am as crazy for these shades as my close one started buying me (or gifting me) stuff in these shades only, they know very well that if they will buy me these shades, I would love it the most. Recently I bought this beautiful rose gold dress and these flats from H&M on a big sale (70% off sum…

Things to Do in Tottori

Tottori, one of the beautiful city in Japan, is a tourist place and around two million tourists come to visit here every year. Tottori isthe biggest desert in Japan. Around 16 Km long desert looks so amazing with a beautiful combination of mountain, sand, and sea. Today I am sharing my experience of Tottori and things to do in Tottori.

Sand Dunes- The major attraction of Tottori is its sand dune. It has a beautiful sand dune beside the beach and sea. It is the biggest sand dune of Japan, it looks so beautiful of the combination of Mountain, Desert, and Sea. 
Sand Museum- The Sand museum is just next to sand dune and you can find it so easily. The sand museum is a huge museum full of sand sculptures, it looks so lively, and the sculptures look like real characters. They show the hard work of the various artists who make them. Fare- 600-yen entry fee
