A few snapshots of the big day, posted on Aiko Jane's blog: http://www.jane.jp/blog/2018/03/27/yamano-ryu-ceremony-and-party.html (Aiko Jane is the head of YamanoRyu - so it's pretty darn awesome to be featured on her personal blog! I'm the third photo down, receiving my kaban from her.) Also, take a look at Aiko Jane's kimono - it is EPIC and I adore it!! She designed it herself. The map of Japan with bling and stunning color contrasts is so pretty. Learning to sew kimono jumped up to the top of my bucket list after seeing her designs.
More to come later - stay tuned.
