Since KDJ Stockholm also exists nowadays, this is the second meetup for KDJ Umeå, that took place on the 29th of May, 2015.
Me and Shiro met up at the restaurant Sagami to celebrate Gofuku No Hi – ie International kimono day! Read more about the meetup in Shiro’s blog post (with more pics of the restaurant) here.
It rained in the forenoon, but the weather thankfully cleared up in the afternoon. Although Shiro had to take care when walking in his shoes, that unfortunately were a bit slippery.
This time I did bring some info/businesscards, and could at least hand one out, although not at the restaurant.

So a nice dinner in honour of the international kimono day, and finally another kimono friend at a KDJ meetup 🙂

My apologies for the delayed summary of the very first Kimono de Jack Sweden, that took place during Umeå Kulturnatta, on Saturday the 24th if May, 2014!
I also missed Gofuku No Hi, International Kimono day, but I will try and write some about that soon 🙂
Anyhow, not too unexpectedly, it was only me that participated and in kimono. But one can in a way say that since I at 12:30 met up with another Eva at the
Swedish Bonsai Association’s table at Kulturnatta, they were also part of it 😉
We of course talked about kimono and bonsai 😀
The arrangers for Kulturnatta wrote that their 10 year contract has expired, but one does hope there will be more Kulturnatta! Lessons learnt for these (or other meetups when it’s warm and sunny).. that sunblock takes longer time to dry than one expects (yes, I mostly get red and itchy of the sun) and that I ought to try and make some kind of businesscard or informal brochure with the website addy to hand out.
I was however asked if it was ok that someone photographed me and added the pic on their blog, but I of course forgot to ask about the address. On the other hand, I did remember to ask them to link to kimonodejack.se so I better add more content here 😉
With high hopes of having a kimono dressed friend, eventually, on a future meetup 🙂
