Is the Kimono Dying Out?

Is the traditional Japanese garment kimono dying out? Well, this BBC radio report suggests it is. Young Japanese do not chose kimonos, and there is an interview with a 70 year old kimono maker who has been declared a human national treasure for his work.

Shiba Inus are all national treasures of Japan. Our coats never go out of style. If you do not want to pay the high prices that you have to give for a real kimono, you can always get a Shiba Inu and have a dear friend for life instead.
