There are a number of Japanese Gardens, and tearooms in Michigan. My husband and I are planning on visiting a number of these locations in the upcoming year, and taking photos of these visits to share with other people.

Here is a preview of my newest outfit, I hope to have higher quality photos later. I need to steam out some of the wrinkles, all the same I love this kimono and obi. The kimono is brand new, and freatures sensu (fans). The obi is the new wave themed obi seen in older journal posts.
