My daughter

Published July 24, 2008 by lunalunaz

She is becoming difficult these days…
Today I wanted to go to a shopping mall with her.
We always ride bicycles when we do that.
I was about to ride an old one but she didn't like it.
She didn't want me to ride an old bicycle or she didn't want to go out with me!
So I finally decided to go with a newer one which is fashionable but does not have a basket (to put bags in).
It seems like outward beauty or neatness is the most important thing in her life!

Gion Festival – music

Published July 17, 2008 by lunalunaz

So a group of performers came near us and played some music. (sort of Gagaku – mainly played in Emperor's Palace, i think)
It is very different from Western music, I am sure!

Here is some explanation of this festival. I hope it helps!

Yukata

Published July 14, 2008 by lunalunaz

The other day I was talking with my internet friend and he didn't know about yukata.
So I uploaded a picture of my daughter in yukata.
(Oh but he doesn't know i have a vox blog!)
It is a kind of kimono,but it is casual and made of cotton.
It is basically summer attire or people used it as nightwear. (nowadays we wear pajamas!)
And now younger people like to wear this for summer festivals.
My daughter was going out with friends to see the famous Gion festival in Kyoto.
