Koi Show

We had a kimono meetup at a local koi show. 🙂

It was hosted at the local botanical gardens, where we decided to take a nice stroll before attending the show. Here is a fairy garden we came across:

The green outfit is (I believe) 11th century Heian male court attire. I had never seen it in person, and wear modern (relatively speaking) kimono myself, so it was really cool to meet someone who owned and wore this style of kimono.

And here of some of the lovely koi that we saw:
