Edo Kitsuke

I’ve been watching a lot of Zatoichi lately, and I have to say the outfits of the various females have left me quite stunned. Ah…Edo kitsuke looks so comfortable and relaxed. I had to give it a go myself.

Not particularly the best kitsuke…but it was fun and boy, did it feel extremely comfortable to wear the kimono and obi like that.  Also – no tabi ’cause I’m iki!  (harhar)
