「秋」Autumn feels

「秋」Autumn feels

Last week we had a sudden curtain of snowfall here in the Tokyo area and I was a little worried – as I didn’t have time yet to go out and appreciate the autumn foliage properly.

先週の雪で少しパニックになった。「まだ紅葉を楽しむ時間はなかったのに、もう冬??」と思ってました。

Thankfully 2 days later we had bombastic weather so I jumped back into my kimono to embrace the yellow and red coloured trees.
On my check list I had this lovely Japanese garden in Kokubunji called ‘Tonogayato garden’ so I got up early to get there.

The snow had basically melted already and a lot of people gathered already in the gardens tea house / viewing platform at the hillside from where you can look onto the trees and a lovely pond.

関東での雪はすぐなくなっちゃうので悲しいけど、秋を楽しめる時間は増えたことで嬉しくて・・ 早速に紅葉を見に!
国分寺の「殿ヶ谷戸庭園」に行ったことはあるけど、紅葉の時期には綺麗との話で戻ることにした。
庭園内、丘の上に「紅葉亭」と言う家?バルコニー?みたいなところがあって、紅葉も池も美しい景色になります。

The sun felt warming and made those coloured leaves glow beautifully.

I wore a dark green silk komon with woven stripes and a pattern looking like tiny cracks. Paired with a red antique obi with crane embroidery, leather tabi from Jotaro Saito and my own design zori (which I will write about next time).

太陽はポカポカ、紅葉は光ってる〜♡

ダークグリーンの小紋を真っ赤のアンティーク名古屋帯と合わせた。鶴の折り紙の刺繍でとても気に入り。
足袋はJotaro Saitoと草履は自分のデザイン草履。(今度ちゃんと紹介します)

I can’t believe its December already. Soon 2016 will come to an end.
But before that let’s enjoy the best kimono weather! Not too hot, not too cold!

もう12月だね。ありえない!><
年末は近づくのは嫌だけど、着物で出かけるのにいい時期ですね。

庭園へ行きたいかたは是非!
