「浴衣でグランドキャニオン」Grand Canyon in Yukata

Last month I went to the United States for a bit – including Las Vegas, its nearby Grand Canyon and California. 実は、先月はアメリカに行ってまいりました。ラスベガスとグランドキャニオン(付近)です。 You probably already know me better – of course I did not go there in Western clothing! Why let the chance slip to wear kimono or at least yukata in such a scenic location? Since I could only travel with a tiny suitcase this time, bringing a full Japanese kimono outfit wasn’t an option – but a yukata (cotton kimono) [...]

「藤の花と着物」Wisteria and kimono

Last month the weather got warm out of sudden, so the Wisteria flowers started blooming faster than usual. These magical weeping flowers are probably one of my favorites ever, so I had to do a small kimono photoshoot. お久しぶりです!元気ですかぁ(猪木さん風に)? 先月から突然暖かくなってきましたね。藤の花は例年より早く咲き始めました。毎年4月下旬からキレイにしだれて咲き始めるこの花は、私の大好きな花の一つで、着物撮影を絶対やりたいと思ってました。 Luckily the gorgeous Choom agreed to model for me. I proudly like to announce that this was the first shoot where I also did the photography and editing apart from the styling and dressing. Surely it isn’t near satisfying and I need to learn a [...]

「六本木ヒルズ春まつり」Roppongi Spring Festival 2018

Last weekend (7th and 8th of April, 2018) I participated the spring festival or “Haru Matsuri” at Roppongi Hills in Tokyo. 2018年4月7及び8日と六本木ヒルズさんの春祭りに参加させてもらいました! 六本木ヒルズの春まつりとは、六本木ヒルズ自治会、森ビル株式会社主催で六本木ヒルズアリーナで毎年行われます。今年は六本木ヒルズさんの15周年でしたよ! Black lace kimono on red juban for a modern look. 黒レース着物で襦袢の色も見せる楽しさ。 Although the Bon dance in summer is well known, the spring festival is still not as famous yet. Organized by the Roppongi hills local community group and the Ropppngi Hills company, this event is held every year at the Roppogi Hills arena. 2018年は、着物が一つのテーマで、花影きもの塾さんの協力で着物レンタルもありました。 6日は強風で中止になってしまいましたが(安全第一!)、残りの2日間は、天気よく、特に8日は最高の天気でした。前の日の強風もあり、桜はきれい(笑)に散っていましたが、輝く太陽の下では新緑が映えてとても良かったですよ。春を感じる二日間でした。 One of the biggest themes this year was [...]

「コンクリートジャングル」Concrete Jungle

Tokyo’s concrete jungle sometimes can be overwhelming. But it also lures you with all its colours and lights. Endless opportunities for shopping and food. Masses of people pushing through the streets like blood cells in the arteries, giving this metropolis live. 東京のコンクリートジャングルは時に過食気味に感じることもあります。 でも、その一方で、その色や光であなたを魅了するものでもあります。買い物や食べ物も数え切れないほどの場所があります。右から左へ流れる人々が、血管を流れる血液のように、この都市に生命を与えていると思いませんか? Shinjuku’s Kabukicho used to be a rather dangerous area controlled by the Yakuza. Today it is rather safe – yet still has countless “pink” businesses and host clubs up to date. A perfect place to go full on with a bold [...]

「着物でスノボ」Snowboarding in kimono

When living in Germany I never got the chance to do any Wintersports apart from ice skating, but 3 years ago my husband taught my how to stand on the snowboard. We flew up to Hokkaido and went snowboarding for 3 days – in the beginning I kept falling on my knees and ass but on the 3rd day I had lots of fun! Since then time passed super fast and I got insecure if I could still do it. When [...]

「撮影」Dirndl vs. Kimono Photoshoot

A few weeks back I had another fun photo shoot with a more complex theme and location. Also I upped the number of models to two! 最近、面白い撮影を考えてみました。今回は、少し深い意味の着物撮影で、モデルさんは二人で! Dirndl vs. Kimono Photoshoot ディルンドル vs 着物 As the name suggests it actually was no competition yet I came up with this idea inspired by the ever boiling “cultural appropriation” topic in the U.S. Although it almost never happened, I did get called out on social media that I should not wear kimono as I am not [...]
