      * We order your kimono (Yukata) to Japan. Reservation .


In Japanese dance, wearing the kimono is indispensable for two main reasons.
It is necessary to know that the kimono is a bearer of the entire philosophy of Japanese traditional dance; it is not only an accessory.Wearing is desirable for training to move correctly and practice exercises, and especially to give beauty to the carefully measured gestures.
* Before the war, kimonos were worn every day in Japan but today one has to go to school to learn how to wear a kimono. Juju Alishina has a diploma in the art of the kimono and in class you can learn these methods with a Yukata (basic Kimono in cotton).
