I visited free 12 layered kimono wearing experience since a brochure was in my post box. I knew it was a kind of sales promotion of kimono school but I pretended I didn't know about it and visited them in kimono.
But they kindly dressed me 12 layered kimono which was court ladies kimono in 10th century.
Of course what I am wearing is not 1000 years old. Each one is very light silk kimono but if you have it with 12 layers, it is warm (hot) and very heavy on shoulders.
