This is the start of the KaranKoron kimono blog! "Karan koron" means "clip clop" (the sound of geta) and "dori" means street... so this blog is "Clip Clop Street."
I plan on posting about kimono and Japanese design and culture. I just set up a vintage kimono shop on Etsy (see the links to the right). I don't have much to post right now, but here's an iPhone shot of a cute ensemble I found outside the local Wakon (Wakon is a chain of fashionable kimono stores). I love the obi's leaf design! It was also available in bright green colors, but I think the brown is nicer.
Fall's finally starting here in Hyogo. Japan had a really hot summer, one of the hottest in a long time. I'm looking forward to cooler weather, it's much more conducive to practicing kitsuke!
