Australian YouTuber Kim Dao recently posted a video in which she shows off her favorite kimono fashion in Asakusa, Japan. Asakuso is a district in the Taitō region of Tokyo well-known for Sensō-ji, one of Japan’s most historic Buddhist temples. Asakuso is also home to a large number of other temples, each of which holds at least one annual festival.
Kim Dao paid a visit to the unique destination with her friend Tim in order to give him a genuine taste of Japanese culture. The two had lunch at a traditional restaurant in Asakuso before purchasing kimonos to wear for an authentic Japanese cultural experience. Later, at the kimono shop, Tim mischievous encouraged Kim to get the flashiest garment she could. Kim Dao and Tim did some casual sightseeing around the town’s main street and then went to Sensō-ji temple for a photo keepsake.
Later on that evening, the pair headed to Sky Tree, Tokyo’s famous broadcast and observation tower, where they picked up a few souvenirs at the gift shop. Kim Dao and Tim parted ways, and before returning home, she stopped by a close friend’s house to chat and catch up a bit.
Although her sojourn into Asakusa was complicated a bit by the fact that she had to record her entry on her phone, she nonetheless had a great time and the video was well received by her fans. Kim Dao loves sharing the vast richness of Japanese culture with her friends from Australia, Korea, and beyond.
