Host: Sayoko

Hi, I'm a producer of Kimono Umbrella, which is created by upcycling kimono, and a kimono dresser. The kimono upcycling brand [AKIZAKURA], which I launched in 2017, was featured in Japanese TV programmes, for example on NHK World's "Kawaii international", and in many magazines, radio and other media. It has also been used in Japan-Tag Dusseldorf, a Japanese event in Germany, and in a fashion show in New York, and is spreading around the world.
As a kimono dresser, I have dressed approximately 1,000 people in Japan and Singapore, and I have also taught kimono knowledge and etiquette to others.
Japanese kimono and the AKIZAKURA's Kimono Umbrella are very beautiful and enhance a person's dignity. I want people all over the world to enjoy those.
So, you can have comfortable time with wonderful smile!
