She is the most popular geisha in Nagasaki. No wonder why (^^)

FRIEND SPOTLIGHT: Evan & Japanese Kimono

If anyone is interested in kimono-wearing or the history or culture surrounding kimono, you should check out my friend Evan’s Youtube channel. 

Evan is an anthropology student who has been studying and collecting kimono for 5 years and has plans to attend grad school in Japan to research kimono and would ultimately like to teach anthropology in Japanese universities. He’s studied multiple languages and runs blogs on kimono and classical Japanese linguistics because he’s a bamf like that.

We met in Japan last year and he’s just a really awesome and smart guy. Check him out, if you’re so inclined. :D
