Kimono creating Atelier in Kyoto- Shi-kunshi koubou-②

(The story continues...) 

"Sacred bamboo" is vividly described on this kimono.
"Realistic depiction" is one of the characteristics of Japanese design.
I love this design and base purple color.
It is gorgeous...
"Night snow" is the motif of this kimono.
Of course you can order your original kimono if you visit here,
the price is less expensive than department store,they said.
Sometimes young girl's mother or father visit here to buy kimono for their daughter,for preparation of their daughter's marriage,they said.
Gentians and narcissus flowers.
They are real and vividly described.
Lovely kitten and orchid flowers.
I think this is peony.It is beautiful.
There are many variations of colors and designs here.
I found a wonderful picture.
Varieties of flowers are described vividely.
Japanese artists pursue "realism" fully. That is the essence of Japanese arts.

How to access
This Atelier is located in Kamigyo Ward,(Kamigyo-ku),Kyoto, near "Imadegawa-Jofukuji" bus stop.(5 minutes walk)
"Shi-kunshi koubou" is the name of the Atelier.

There is a parking.
