Fun Friday: do you recognize the flower motif on this yukata?

Woohoo! I finally found a yukata with sleeves to fit my crazy long arms! Kyoto Kimono posted some new yukata on their website...and this one is now on it's way! It's 66" long and has a 54" wingspan.

I love the interesting color combination, the stripes, and the unusual flowers. It has kind of a retro-Hawaiian-Pop feel. I'm thinking of pairing this with my pink hakata obi or possibly a red obi. I'll have to see about coordination when it arrives.

The flowers are a mystery though...if you think you know what they might be, leave a comment. In the meantime, I will post this on the Immortal Geisha forum and see if anyone can identify the flower.

Have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend!


  1. Sticking with the Hawaiian theme, I'd say hibiscus.

  2. Hi sillygatos!
    I have definitely considered hibiscus....the lack of stamens made me think it's something else, but you might be right. I actually looks more like Poinsettia to me now! ;)
