We can experience the good old Japan here in Saga. We walked the town wearing a Kimono\(^o^)/
While we are studying in Japan, one of the things we want to experience is to wear a kimono.
Every country has its national costume.
For example, Vietnam ; Ao Dai, China ; China dress, and Korea ; Hanbok...
Wearing a national costume may be a very good way to experience the culture of the country. \(^o^)/
We went to "Yosooidokoro Futaba", Kimono Shop in Saga, and had an experience of wearing Kimono.
✔ Easy experience! Let's wear kimono and take a walk in the good old town in Saga!
We went to Yosooidokoro Futaba, which is very close to Human Academy Saga School.
The shop is located only 10 minutes' walk from Human Academy Saga School.
Yosooidokoro Futaba is on the 2nd floor of "The Old Hisatomi's House", which is the History Museum of Saga, located along the Old Nagasaki Street.This house was remodeled in February 2015, it has a cafe on the 1st floor, besides Futaba there're other 6 shops. There are old houses and banks built in Meiji and Taisho periods along the Old Nagasaki street.

There are various kinds of Kimonos in the shop. You can choose the one whatever you like.

Only a few Japanese can wear Kimono by themselves.

We were very curious about the way she dress us...
She is really professional and dressed us really quickly!
