More Kids in Kimono: Still Cute

A few more pictures of kids in kimono, a followup from Kids in Kimono: Cute Enough to Eat earlier in the week. The current forecast is for rain on Sunday (when the kimono-clad-kids should be out again), so perhaps these shots are it for this year...

A Bit Different This looks a lot to me like traditional Korean attire, but it could also be a girl's hakama . I don't know.  --  Kyoto, Japan  --  Copyright 2008 Jeffrey Friedl, http://regex.info/blog/

A Bit of Color

As I wrote the other day, we're still waiting for the fall colors to really arrive, but some trees have certainly given us a nice preview. Here's Nijo street, which runs in front of the shrine...

The shrine is just to the left of the traffic light, which is where Jingumichi (“Shrine St.”) dead-ends. That's the street with torii (the big orange gate), thus giving views like this when you stand far enough away and look back toward the shrine.

Wonderful photos! We stop by your site a few times a week to get our Kyoto fill and we’re never let down. I especially like your titles and comments. Very fun! Also, we were upset by your Gizmodo experience, but we’re glad they pulled the post. Thanks for bringin us back to a city we love so much! G&G

The children really are precious. So enjoy seeing them. Captions are perfect, especially onthe “What the..?? (the Geisha-meets-American- Square- Dancer)

“What the..”

I had always thought Shichi-go-san was to showcase the kids, not the mother or father. This seems to have been lost for this Okaa-san.
