Japanese kimono and Chinese garment exhibition
A few hours ago was a Japanese kimono and Chinese garment exhibition in the Chalmer Davee Library on the university campus, with Japanese language instructor Magara Maeda shown here, showing how a kimono is put on and taken off. Various Japanese 101 students were also packed into the small space. I will say this town is blessed with so many cultural events and people willing to put them on and go to them. I have had a couple years of Japanese, and some self taught, but sadly through lack of use it tends to get a bit muddy in my mind, not to mention my horrible shyness makes me doubt myself, so yeah. I need to work on that.
