#772 People are unusually kind and treat us well when we are in kimono. Maybe.
↑My friend made me this mask to pair the haori-kimono.↑
Recently I met with two other friends for a “kimono lunch”. A “kimono lunch” means everyone who attends the lunch must be wearing kimono.
The weather was sunny. It was a perfect day to wear kimono outside.
We had lunch at a nice restaurant at Namba. The food and atmosphere were great but the staff made a mistake in the order and served a different dish to my friend. She had ordered a salmon rice pot, but they gave her a sea bream rice pot. The server said, “Sorry, we’ll make another one, but it’ll take some time.” My friend said, “Well, it’s okay. I’ll take the sea bream.” After a while, the server brought us three salmon sushi as an apology for the mistake. We shared the sushi and they were delicious.
When we left the restaurant, a casher apologized sincerely about the mistake.
We talked about that people are unusually kind and treat us well when we are in kimono. Maybe.
At a Chanel boutique
We stopped by a Chanel boutique which I’ve never been in. My friends like Chanel. We were just looking in the crowded store. I was wearing a mask which has the same pattern design as my kimono.
Three store staff at different corners said to me, “Your mask matches with your kimono! They are stunning!” “You look gorgeous!” “Three of you were so outstanding when you entered the store”
I was so happy because I was praised by the Chanel staff. And I didn’t feel that they were just trying to flatter us.
We talked about how incredibly kind people were when we were in kimono again after leaving the store.
