There was a discussion on FB about shopping bags and furoshiki. Top left is my pile of shopping bags and furoshiki ready for use at anytime. There's probably at least one umbrella in ther somewhere too. Top right is a furushiki full of hanhaba obi and kitsuke goods I brought to the University on Tanabata for my yukata dressing class. Bottom left is a comparatively large bag I received as a freebie from a bookstore when I bought a ton of books. Bottom right is an example of a (well worn) store tape put on goods to prove purchase when you don't want a bag.

Went to Bunkyo camous to finish grading, all electricity was off for the day. Very annoyed. Went shopping in Asakusa. New samue (kimono pants and jacket work clothes), new summer tabi, new blue&white yukata, new summer nagajuban. Eeks!

Coordinate for Tanabata 2018 July 7 @ Bunkyo

Have gone through something like at least 10 ideas about what to wear today, July 1st, (want to Taisho-ish coordination), but did manage to decide what to wear next Saturday for my student's kitsuke lesson. This bamboo-motif yukata (for Tanabata on 7/7) and golden hanhaba obi (not pictured).

Wait, wait, wait! I have an asagao (morning glory) hanhaba obi, perfect for Tanabata!

image



And, that is indeed what I wore!!!

A red dragonfly had set on the yellow flower of the tsuwabuki in the corner of the garden
