Ahhhh, Kyoto! While in Kyoto in late November and again in late December, some of the temples and gardens I visited (Nison-in, Tenryu-ji, Kiyomizu-dera, Maruyama Koen, Tofuku-ji) also had quite a few ladies (and some men) there in kimono. You too, if you'd like to try this once in a lifetime experience, can rent your own kimono and then visit these very same places. Be prepared to be gawked at and photographed though! Here are a few of the nicest I saw, some of them worn by foreign visitors. Generally, these are not expensive kimono, but they are good enough! There's also a photo of me in here somewhere. Can you find me?
