Reasons for the choice of Online Lesson
Why do people choose MAIKICHIKIMONO online kimono lessons?
There are many reasons.
- I’d love to wear kimono and learn how to put it on, but I live in a distant place.
- I can’t understand how to put on kimono even though I watch videos repeatedly. I need some advice in English.
- There are no neighbors who teach me how to put on kimono.
- I’d like to take lessons in English and teach it to my friends.
- I want to study Japanese culture and language through wearing kimono.
You choose either one, plus a 60-munut lecture of kimono basic knowledge.
*There are individual differences in learning time.
We hope you enjoy wearing kimono.
We enjoy lessons online!
