    「最近について」Recent Media Coverage
    Can you believe its already September?? The past months sure have gone by like a whirlwind. Compared to the past years I suddenly got a bit of media coverage all at once, which I’d like to share here (also partly as a diary to my future self, haha). ご機嫌いかがですか?  いやー、もう9月なんですね。なんだか時がたつのが早くて参っちゃいます(年寄りです 笑)。夏ばてしてるんではないか、と思っていらっしゃる方々に(?)、近況についてご報告します。 The Japan Times Due to the “KimOhNo” incident I got interviewed for The Japan...

    「北鎌倉の紫陽花」The Hydrangea of Kita-Kamakura 梅雨に絶対行くべき、鎌倉の名所とは!?
    The only positive thing about the rainy season in Japan (next to the watering of the veggies) is the beautiful Hydrangea blooming on every corner. 梅雨の季節になりましたねぇ。いかがお過ごしですか? じめじめとした湿気、ちょと、ほっておいたパンが知らぬ間にカビだらけなんてことに・・・、洗濯物は干しても、いつまでもジメジメです。梅雨のいいとこってなにかなぁと考えてみました。まず、野菜に水をやれること。農家さんは助かりますね(雨が多すぎでもよくないのですけど。。)。あとは、梅雨の風物詩、アジサイです!赤や紫、青など、きれいですね。 If the venue famous for hydrangea in Japan, Mimuroto temple in Kyoto is so famous. Yet, if in Kanto area, I have one favorite place. Especially famous for the often blue or purple flower is Kamakura (鎌倉)...

    Interview with a foreign Miko 「史上初?日本で活動する外国人巫女さんにインタビュー」
    A friend of mine is working as a Miko (shrine maiden) in Japan. After I went to see her perform a ceremonial dance recently, I received a lot of questions about her profession and how it is to be a foreign Miko. So I asked if she would be willing to share her journey with you via an interview. I incorporated the most frequently...

    「令和」The start of a new era
    Today (1st May 2019) marks a special and historic day in Japan. The change of the emperor which ultimately includes the start of a new era. 本日、2019年5月1日は日本では記念すべき日になりました。第125代天皇明仁が退位され、皇太子徳仁親王が即位されました。何かと騒がれた退位ですが、天皇制の歴史の中では、これまで何度もあったようですね。 令和 – REIWA I really love the name for the new time period, because it sounds similar to the period I was born in (昭和 – Shōwa) and has the Kanji 和 (wa) in it, which stands...

    Kimono Styled & Restyled 「ファッションとしてのきもの 1300 年」
    Last month I went to Osaka and Kyoto for a couple of days. (Mixing business with pleasure) A friend of mine introduced me to this interesting exhibition by the Kyoto Textile Fabrics Wholesaler’s Association which just had their 50th Anniversary. Luckily I had time to check it out before heading back to Tokyo. 先月は関西に行ってきたついでに、「ファッションとしてのきもの1300年」との着物展示会に出会いました。写真はOKでしたので、こちらで軽く紹介したいと思います。 This exhibition was beautifully curated and showcasing the evolution of...

    「着物ティー」SALZ Kimono Shirt Collection
    Hey! Hopefully you’re having a great week? みなさん、明日11月23日は勤労感謝の日ですね。いかがお過ごしですか? Just wanted to announce a new idea to showcase the beautiful collaborative images I did in the past year with many international creators. 日本や世界中で大活躍されてるアーティストさんたちと一緒に作ってきた作品を形にしていきたいと思っていました。 As you know, I frequently style kimono photo shoots. Some just as an art form and in hope to inspire others to view kimono as a fun fashion item. Wearing kimono comes...
