Japanese Fashion Blog, Goth style blogger, Tokyo Japan Gothic Lolita, Travel TV host It’s a special time of the year for many people in Japan: sakura season.

I accessorized it with a kimono-style top, from alternative Japanese designer h.NAOTO’s Gouk collection. The flower-appreciation began centuries back, in the Nara period. People of all ages and interests take part in hanami. I wanted to pay tribute to the season with my outfit. My electric blue haircolor gives my look a modern feel. Many “yukata” or summer kimonos have long sleeves and cherry flower prints, colors or motifs. Details, details.
