    The obi she is wearing is so pretty.

    I think so! If there is Maiko-san, It will become crowds in Japan.

    When I was there as a child, I was very proud of my little summer kimono and obi. I had my tabi socks and gatas and walked very well in them. They were not high like hers but just right for a child. Good memories.

    I'm so glad that your memories in Japan are good for you! Yokohama near Yokosuka has become a beautiful city where modern buildings are dotted with historical structures. :)

    I am very glad that some of the historical structures still stand. I think that we, as a world culture, are too quick to destroy the old and build the new and flashy. I collect old plates, cups, bottles, little things that have a pattern or color that pleases me. I have found some lovely little things that were made in Japan in the 50's and early 60's. When I find something old I wonder about who used it and did they like it as much as I do. It is the same when I enter an old building that is used as a museum. I can feel the history and wonder about who the people were and how they lived. A little silly, perhaps. But if you think about what would happen if suddenly there was no power, knowing how old things were used can be a good thing to know.
