How to modernize your kimono

Monday, November 24, 2008 - 09:40 AM

Last night Roland brought me along to his friend's kimono Party. Yes, you guessed it, a kimono party is a party with people dressed in kimonos. Of course it was somewhat tongue in cheek, but as most Japanese these people were dead serious about their hobby. There was a one hour presentation on ways to modernize your kimono, like a 100-yen attachment to carry your cell phone in your obi (kimono belt) or a turtleneck undershirt to keep warm in winter. These things aren't cheap either; $2000 is about average for a good kimono. And how else to finish the evening but with a kimono striptease?

The kimono party sounds fascinating--but I can't find the video. Where is it?

No need to capitalize kimono, geisha or other nouns. And they are uncountable: one kimono, two geisha, etc. A
