I love kimono. I think kimono is the most beautiful, colorful dress in the world, and I collect many vintage kimono that I wear and cherish. My great-great grandma used to own a kimono store, and my grandma was a traditional Japanese dancer who wore beautiful dance costumes. This love of kimono is part of my family tradition and heritage.

At first, I learned how to wear kimono from my family, but then I wanted to learn more. I went to school and received a license to teach people how to dress in kimono. There is only one place in all Japan to get a license to do this properly, and that is the Yamano International Kimono School.

I am honored to be able to share my deep love of kimono and Japanese culture with you.
