Happy New Year, Tenugui Fans!

Happy New Year, Tenugui Fans!

Happy New Year, Tenugui Fans!!!!

I am so excited for Welcome Year 2015, so I was celebrated New Year with my dear Kimono friends at Fabio Cucina in my special Kimono.

You may know which one is me? I am on right in yellow Kimono. My Kimono is my mother’s, and my obi (belt) is my grandma’s. And then, I love using Tenugui as a Kimono collar, can you see my yellow Kanoko tenugui around my kimono neck? Here you go, Three generation Kimono coordinate!

Wish you all the best of 2015, and let’s enjoy wonderful year and Tenugui with me this year also!

Tenugui mumbling Vol.44 – Tenugui Magic Vol.02 Hyottoko Dance

Monday, October 19th, 2009

Tenugui can be used many different ways. Our “Hyottoko Tenugui” is a very unique one, it has two eye holes on it, so you may use it as a mask. It will be your great Halloween mask. We made a short movie of the “Hyottoko Dance”?for?you…

The Hyottoko Dance is a Japanese traditional dance dating back more than 900 years. It features a male dancer blowing fire from a bamboo tube, creating a funny faced, comical character called Hyottoko, which has been loved by the Japanese. It may also include a female character called “Okame”, and of course we have a “Okame Tenugui” on our site as well!
In the video, the dancer is wearing Hyottoko Tenugui and Tenugui Fundoshi (Japanese traditional underwear… coming soon at our site) in Central Park, hopefully brings you a laugh of magic from New York!

I always believe that Good foods, Daily Exercises, Many Laughes, and Love… bring healthy life to your day.
A laugh of magic, Happy Halloween, everybody!!!
