I was amazingly lucky in having an incredible amount of support from kind people when I debuted who gave me kimono or accessories that I needed to be a geisha. The older sister that I am most grateful to is Kakioka-san, a geisha from another district 40 years ago who gave me an entire treasure chest full of kimono and obi. Pictures of Kakioka-san and me in the same kimono. Now that I am hoping to have a younger sister I am collecting furisode kimono

Great place to lose some extras kilos


People often ask me where I would recommend a beginner to buy kimono. The best place is probably TANSU-YA where they have both new and recycled kimono and the staff are very experienced at helping beginners to choose a kimono that is affordable and suitable for them.
