Message from mayunabe

Hi, I’m Mayunabe.

I do not speak English. But the reason for this challenge is
It was a polite DM that arrived from overseas.

And, thanks to the support of my best friends Sala and Kay, I can challenge!

When I read Facebook, I found that many people overseas are very interested in Japanese historical costumes.

Kimono fitting can often seem very difficult.

But originally, it’s a very, very freedom and wonderful outfit!

I think the correct answer for kimono fitting is to fit and enjoy as you like.
I want to convey it forever.

We love all kimono lovers★☆★


Special thanks
