The main highlight of the programme was Yukata Try-On Session. Yukata衣浴 (浴Yu means bath, 衣 katabira means under clothing) is a summer kimono/ casual Kimono. It is usually worn by woman, but is also worn by men. The Consulate-General of Japan invited Yukata Sensei Ms. Imura and Ms. Sato to demonstrate and teach the students how to wear yukata.
