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.
As a kimono dresser, I have dressed approximately 1,000 people in Japan, Singapore and France, 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.
This time, I worked with kiyoko, a professional tea ceremony teacher, to create content that allows visitors to experience Japanese culture in more depth!
So, you can have comfortable time with wonderful smile!
