Japan Kimonos

We noticed the Kimonos, but put it together pretty quickly, that these are only worn at special locations. If we were at Disney or a Temple or an event we saw Kimonos. Here are a few pictures we saw.

The kimono is a traditional Japanese garment. The word kimono literally means ki (着 “wearing”, specifically on the upper body) + mono (物 “thing”).

Were a Metro Detroit, Michigan, couple – second marriages for both of us – and we dream of retiring early to Travel the World. Follow us while we try and figure out to raise our kids, and save to retire. David is a Robot Programmer, Laura is a Medical Physicist. We put our kids before ourselves for years, saved and ate at home and now after years of all this sacrifice and raising our kids - we are closing in on empty nesting, and we realized we have the opportunity to retire earlier than most and follow our dreams to travel the world. How are we going to do this? Well we have a lot of ideas, but lets see how it works out. Our original retirement date was January 1, 2021. We are reviewing the option of working another 3 years but prefer to keep the 2021 date, either way we will be retired by 55 years old - still trying to figure out how, but working toward our goal everyday, while enjoying each other and our blended family. Follow us to see what happens. All images on this blog are copyright (c)

    1. We got a ticket for ~$900 but we left from Toronto, which is about a 3 hour drive from our home in Michigan. I noticed on Travelocity you can find deals if you sign up for the watch, and I see awesome deals on Travelzoo all the time.

      1. Thank you for the tip there. I’ll check them out. We think the US of A has better prices than South Africa. Hubby and I said we will use a VPN to hide we’re in SA and see if we can get better deals. 😊 I will definitely check Travelocity and Travelzoo. Thanks a mil!

  1. Not only are the kimonos made from beautiful fabrics, but the multi-looped cummerbunds create an eye-catching finish–at the back! Thank you for the lovely photos, and for becoming a follower of my blog, From the Inside Out. I hope you’ll find the posts meaningful whenever you’re able to visit!
