In preparation for the last day of the Bon-Odori, when there is the costume competition, I practiced wearing a yukata the way women wear them. This turned out to be much more complicated than the male style.
|I bought a cute yukata for 500 yen in a recycle shop.|
For men, you stick your arms into a bathrobe and tie a belt in a fairly simple knot. That is all. For women, you have to adjust the length of the yukata by complicated folding, tie several hidden ropes to keep things in place, and tie a gigantic obi (belt) into a complicated shape. And it is also very hot under all those layers of cloth...
