hakki: So fashionable kimono
Kjeld Duits: @Laureliz: Very true. Luckily, there are a few shops that carry material from the Taisho Period (1912-1925), during which designers were incredibly adventurous. We covered two shops like that on our blog: Hundred Year Old Cool Tokyo 135˚ Another recommended article about kimono: The Great Kimono Revival I totally agree with you about Yukari; she is very sassy!
Laureliz: You know, it really is hard to find original/unique yukata – they all lean towards traditional patterns and colors. But, I LOVE Yukari’s purple and black one! She’s sassy, and I think she looks great :)

Mel: Possibly… :L
Kjeld Duits: @Mel: Maybe because of his eyebrows?
Mel: In the large picture of Yusuke at the top, he almost remind me of Kazuya Kamenashi. Just a little bit…

Kjeld Duits: @2046: I shot them at the Tenjin Matsuri, one of the three main matsuri of West Japan.
2046: I love all these yukata shots. I especially like when the young (and not so young) men express their own style while incorporating traditional dress. Were these taken at Tekuteku Kimono The First?
