Retro experience in a Hakama(1/4)

    Previous  |  

    A perfect fit for these retro streets, let's try on a hakama!

    In Mojiko I tried on a "hakama (a type of Japanese clothing)" for the first time! It's an outfit that I've seen some times in anime. But actually putting it on and the feeling I had when I was wearing it were completely different to my experience with kimonos and yukata. I really learnt something new! Unfortunately it rained on the day I was in town, but it did give me the chance to walk the retro streets with a traditional Japanese (oil-paper) umbrella called "ban-gasa", which really added to my wonderful experience. And when I was there I also got to ride a rickshaw! You can also find hakama that women can rent , so it's a great chance to go for a stroll around these nostalgic, old-style streets in matching outfits!
