We had a very nice day in Nara, the beautiful place in Japan. Dressing in a Taisyou Romance style is so enjoyable. The only problem was that people thought we were Japanese and asked to have photo with us.:P No matter, we saying ”You are welcome” all the way.
The place (and the dressing style) is too beautful to stop my camera!!!
Did the shots all the way to Shrine. >www<
We took so many nice shots! I will post more pictures later.
p.s. Somebody ask for the kimono shop in Nara, so I put the link of the kimono shop here. You can rant kimono/yukata there, and the onwer will help you to dress on with her professional still. She can also do the hair setting to match with your kimono.
