We often receive questions from our customers on how to have meals when wearing KIMONO. I always tell them that it's nothing different from any other usual meals, but still I can understand that you might be afraid of dropping food on your KIMONO. If so, please put your handkerchief on your knees. Or it's OK to put one end of the handkerchief in-between the layer of your OBI belt (see the picture below). It's better not to pull it up to your chin since it can look too childish. In order to prevent food from dropping, dividing the food into bite-size with chopsticks is a graceful way. Please try to avoid hamburgers!
Some costumers say there were no problem with eating, and some say they couldn't eat that much. The tightness from the OBI belt differs by each individual.
Now you are in KIMONO and that is already extraordinary. It's wonderful to experience dining in KIMONO, choosing food, away from your everyday life. The most important thing is to enjoy. Don't worry and please have fun!
