KIMONO FUN in OKINAWA, JAPAN -- A Royal Okinawan Bingata Kimono

Okinawa Soba's second daughter (middle child). Scanned from large matted studio print.

 

White Bingata fabric is one of the most expensive and hard to find among the photo studios on Okinawa. The rough cost of this Kimono ensemble is about 15,000 U.S. Dollars. She only rented it, of course.
