Yukata Dressing Event Held at TUT Global House
TUT Global House provides a wide range of cultural exchange programs designed to facilitate diverse encounters to help international and Japanese students living in the dorm acquire life skills: peer learning, wellness, and lasting friendships. As part of the program, a yukata dressing event was held.
International students from seven countries and Japanese students attended the event. They enjoyed discussing the differences between yukata and their own traditional clothing.
Both male and female students experienced the difficulty of knotting the yukata obi, or sash, while they learned each step of the dressing process. The yukata is one of the easiest pieces of traditional Japanese clothing to wear. The participating international students were surprised to learn that there were still so many rules and procedures to follow.
