Yuka(right) and I(left) dressed in yukatas, a casual form of kimono, for the Bridge USA Natsu Matsuri (Japanese summer festival) that took place today in Torrance, CA. Yuka was dying to find an occasion to wear hers, so she taught me how to wear mine and make my obi bow. In old school Japan, you wore one for afternoon tea cermony or ikebana. The festival was the perfect occasion because many many goers had them on. We ate takoyaki, okunomiyaki, kirin beer and cotton candy.
