I heard that the recent questionnaire about "KYO BIJIN (beautiful women from Kyoto)" showed the following results.
Q : What is the requirement for KYO BIJIN?
A1: Looks good in KIMONO
A2: Having soft and elegant Kyoto accent
A3: Having graceful manner and behavior
As the results shows, KIMONO and KYO BIJIN are inseparable indeed. As for "Kyoto accent" and "Graceful manner and behavior", YUMEYAKATA offers various lectures such as "Kyoto Language Lesson" and "Classical Japanese Dance Lesson" at YUMEYAKATA OIKE BETTEI branch. However, learning overseas culture is not easy. It takes some time, right?
Here's a good news!
Learning other culture takes time, but you can be a KIMONO BIJIN (KIMONO Beauty) at once! As you slip into a KIMONO, you experience a trip to an extraordinary day. Anywhere in Kyoto, the scenery will welcome beautiful you in KIMONO.
If you want to be a KYO BIJIN, why don't you try shorter steps when you walk, slower tempo when you speak, or let's not forget to place your left hand together with your right hand when you pick up something? These actions may sound trivial, but the effect is immense. Your impression will be hugely changed and it will be very favorable.
Just imagine! You maybe regarded as a KYO BIJIN by travelers and visitors from overseas, as you walk around Kyoto in YUMEYAKATA KIMONO!
