This is me in my yukata. My Okinawan friends convinced me to wear one (which wasn't hard I love dress up) and helped me get dressed in it. We all wore them to a festival this weekend. Yukatas are like kimonos but lighter and less formal. It is a lot like a robe, but it has extra fabric on the sleeves and a piece of heavier fabric with a bow that ties around the middle called a obe. They are often worn to festivals and other events. I had so much fun experiencing part of Japanese culture! Pictures of the festival will follow soon!
