Kimono Experience with Global Travel Blogger Summit Japan

So, where should I start? I was with the Global Travel Blogger Summit in Japan for a week, and it was one of the best travel experiences I have ever had in my Thai travel blogger's life. Seriously, I got to wear the traditional Japanese "Kimono" which was amazing, and yes...AMAZING. It wasn't that easy to wear the kimono, but it was fun though I could barely breath when I was in the taxi. Thank you Kimono Rental for the hard-work too! It was one of the memorable days in Kobe :)


It was the 2nd day of The Equinox Fashion in Kobe, after the long flight at night. In fact, the first day, I was like d-e-a-d because I couldn't even sleep on the plane, due to some traumatic kicks behind me...So, after a night of fully rested, I was pumped and ready to explore everything about Kobe! (Including the well-known Kobe beef) I had never tried the kimono before, nor thought about renting it because I am just too "girly-girl" You know what I mean? ... However, my perspective has been changed since the day I wore these beautiful hand-made pieces. So much respect for every woman who wears this! I mean, so many layers to put on, which it may make you feel uncomfortable. But the show must goes on right? 

It was good to be able to "feel" like a Japanese woman for a day :) All of the garments were very extraordinary, and beautiful. I felt like Spring myself, because mine was very cheerful and pretty indeed. At first, I aimed for the black and red combination, but this one also suited with my ombre hair so well! Look at these pink, red, violet flowers, aren't they look cute?! 

We went to a few places, including Kobe harbor, and shrine, which was surrounded by Sakura in the full-bloom. Instantly, I fell in love with Kobe :) Who would have thought that the big city girl like me, who obsessed with everything about Tokyo would feel this way, right? I mean, I feel like "I'm home" every time when I come to Japan. No matter where I go, I just LOVE this country so much that I could ever let go. If you remember the previous posts from last year, you will know that one of the reasons why I love JP is because the mix of culture, which well-balanced and so individual. 

ถ้าใครได้ตามไอจี The Equinox Fashion ของแก้วนะคะจะรู้ว่าเมื่ออาทิตย์ที่ผ่านมาแก้วได้เดินทางไปร่วมงานกับ Travel Blogger Summit Japan ซึ่งมีบล็อกเกอร์ท่องเที่ยวจากประเทศอื่นๆ มาร่วมทริปด้วย จริงๆ ไฮไลท์ของทริปนี้ก็แน่นอนการใส่ชุดกิโมโนที่ดูเหมือนง่ายนะ แต่ไม่ง่ายเลย เพราะว่ามันอัดแน่นไปด้วยเลเยอร์ของชุดคือแทบจะหายใจไม่ออกเลยเวลานั่งบนรถแท๊กซี่ แต่ก็ถือว่าสนุกไปอีกแบบค่ะเพราะใครจะรู้ว่าแฟชั่นบล็อกเกอร์ไทยแบบแก้วซึ่งเป็นคนที่ชอบแต่งแบบทอมบอยหน่อยจะดูเลดี้ได้ขนาดนี้ คือส่องกระจกก็กลัวตัวเองเล็กๆ 555 แต่ว่าพอใส่แล้วมันก็ทำให้เรารู้สึกว่าความเป็นญี่ปุ่นมีอยู่ในทุกอณูจริงๆ เพราะว่างานทอมือแบบนี้มันช่างสวยและปราณีตจริงๆ แถมไม่ได้ใส่แค่แป๊ปเดียวนะคะ พวกเราทุกคนได้เดินขึ้นไปที่ศาลเจ้าด้านบนซึ่งสวยมากๆๆๆ เพราะมีดอกซากุระเต็มไปหมด คือเหมาะมากถ้าใครที่มาเดทกับแฟน ถ้าใครอยากลองสัมผัสประสบการณ์ความเป็นผู้หญิงญี่ปุ่นไม่ควรพลาดนะ :)
