Seen on Ninen-zaka in Kyoto. I should explain my suspicion that this is in fact a Chinese tourist ... My guidebook told me that there are many stores that will rent you a kimono - women's or men's - for a day. So you can walk around the temples and gardens in a beautiful outfit. I saw many people doing this, and most appeared to be Chinese.
