It was cloudy all day long, but I am so glad it did not rain because I wore the summer kimono called sha (紗).
First I went to the Kimono-style Miya to get dressed, hair done and makeup. I made this Kimono and bag to join the invitation trip to Hakodate(函館), Hokkaido(北海道) last year. But unfortunately I became sick on that day and could not attend the trip. Hakodate is one of the places I have wanted to visit for a long time. Therefore I was so shocked last summer.
This type of summer kimono is usually worn at the midsummer.
Second I was invited to luncheon at an Italian restaurant in Yokohama. The only condition to join this was to attend with kimono. There were about 20 people. Many people wore greenish colored kimono today.
I left the restaurant earlier to attend a seminar by a best seller writer Mr. Toyokazu Tsuruta(鶴田豊和). He recently published his second book titled ""Tsumaranai" ga nakunaru hon (｢つまらない｣がなくなる本), " meaning "Boredom will disappear with this book" or "The book to disappear "boring.""
This seminar was also invited one. The only condition to attend this seminar was to bring his new book after registering.
It's been a while since I attended his seminar last.
After the seminar I asked him for his autograph and picture.
I had a good day.
I hope you do too.
