Obligatory "First post" post

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!
