    「キモノとビジネス」Kimono and Business
    Last week I was invited as a guest speaker at the Ritsumeikan University. みなさん、ごきげんよう。台風続きで困っちゃいますね。もうこれ以上被害がでないでほしいです。 気温の変化も激しくなる今日この頃ですね。マスクに咳している人も目立つ季節となりました。ご慈愛下さいね。 さて、今回のお題ですが、先週、なんと、あの立命館大学でお話をする機会を頂いてしまったのです。以前、都内の大学でもお話をさせてもらっていますが、関西に初進出です(おおげさか! 笑) 素敵な立命館大学大阪茨木キャンパス(通称:OIC) Before my visit I was really thinking about what I should wear.
