We can find amazing world in the OBI

I have a chance to learn Classical Japanese dance in NY.
One day I went to the lesson with my favorite OBI. You may see the OBI in the photo. When my teacher saw my OBI she said “What a wonderful OBI you are wearing!”

This OBI represents dance number of KABUKI performance.
To tell the truth, I did not notice that my OBI represents dance number of KABUKI since I bought the OBI. Draper’s told me this OBI is designed ANESAMA-MOYOU. AMESAMA-MOYOU is doll which is made by Japanese paper and figured paper.

I was ashamed of myself and I looked at my OBI carefully and found that there is KABUKI world in my OBI! There are many famous KABUKI numbers and these numbers are painted in my OBI!! I found my teacher’s debut dance “OKANE” too.
At the same day, I had dinner with the one whose grandfather was GIDAYU (GIDAYU plays an important part of ballad drama). We had dinner at WAJIMA, one of my favorite Japanese restaurants. I was little excited whether he will notice my OBI design or not.
Did you find any KABUKI numbers in my OBI?

FUJIMUSUME, DOMYOJI, SHIOKUMI,…Did you find them?

Of course you may say, ANESAMA-MOYO too!

Doomo Arigatou for your FANTASTIC blog!!! I was interested in Oshima tsumugi, because it is considered casual (but EXPENSIVE) kimono day wear and I am looking for used Oshima tsumugi since having lived in Kagoshima City, it is difficult to find it. I imagine that I have to go to Japan because it is a unique style of weaving...Anyway...thank you very much!!! Karl Lagerfeld...WOW!!!
