Hello hello my dear readers!

Finally I have time to write a few new entries here. Yes, I wrote `a few´. I wanna tell you about the Japanweek and I have to split everything into 3 parts. The private language school called "F+U", located in Heidelberg, organized the Japanweek again (May 3rd-5th) and I am happy to say that I was a member of the Kimono/Yukata course (^_^)/°

THE PREPARATION TIME:

We started about 2 weeks before the event started to prepare everthing. We often met, had meetings, practiced the dressing part and I also translated a lot into German (most of our group members were Japanese people who learn German since a few months/weeks - we talked in English, Japanese and German *laughs*) for the presentation and dressing explanation. Everytime we met we worked at least 4 hours but it was always funny =3 Actually I should only help during the dressing part (Yukata), but ´cause I know much about Kimono I conducted the presentation with another member of our group as well.

I also helped with hanging up posters and handing out flyers in the city, which looked like this:



Our Yukata test dressings:



Since I collect only Kimono I wore Yukata for the first time. It´s very easy =D Maybe I will buy one someday ^_~


FIRST EVENT DAY:

May 3rd programm

- Kimono/Yukata course
- Japanseminar


Around 15 pm the Kimono/Yukata course started. We had about 20 guests. First we held our presentation:



We talked about the following things:

the meaning and origin of Kimono, Furisode, Obi musubi, Uchikake, Mofuku, Shichi-Go-San, Maiko and of course Yukata. We also prepared a little quiz for our guests =D Since I own a Furisode and many accessoires you need for it, we showed them during the presentation:

the accessoires

the Furisode

Then our guest had to try dressing themselves into Yukata without any help. Here you can see everything we provided:



After this we showed how it works correctly and also helped when they still needed some advice:





All had a lot of fun and wanted to know much about Kimono. ♥ And this picture shows all the Kimono group members together:

Thanks for the good work! m(_ _)m

Like you can see in the pics above I wore Kimono (what a surprise *haha*). Here you can see the whole ensemble for the first day:

I wore my Komon ♥

... with Asami-chan ♥

LUNCHTIME - Off to the Maid Café:




Everday the Maid Café offered many delicious Japanese meals. I never ate so much within 3 days =3 *yummy* The menu of the first day was Oyako-Don - my personal fav ♥ It was so good ♥


oishikatta desu ♥


NEXT AND LAST POINT - JAPANSEMINAR:

They talked about men society, women´s fashion and Sushi:


we could make our own sushi ♥

I hope you all had fun reading this entry and looking at the pictures. ありがとう ♥

Dankeschön Miya *o* Echt? Also ich mag Kimono viel mehr, weil sie einfach edler sind und mehr nach "Kunst" aussehen *lach* Aber für heiße Sommertage sind Yukata immer praktisch =)
