    I always loved to see the Japanese people wearng their traditional clothes. I also enjoyed very much staying in old ryokan with all the tradition followed therein. I don’t care much for the young Japanese emulation of hip westerners. But, c’est la vie.

      Yeah … change is inevitable.
      Even in the twenty-three years I’ve been here I’ve seen a lot of change.

      Those are yukata; light summer kimono.
      Yukata are popular at summer festivals in Japan.

        Yes… the shape, design and way they’re worn is different.
