Hello. My name is Hiroko Ando. I am a Japanese woman based in Numazu City, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. I enjoy Tai Chi and Mah Jongg.
Zori are sandals. In the past, people in Japan used to weave straw to make shoes when they didn't have enough. Now I have made them from old Kimono. Yukata Kimono, Yukata is a summer kimono made of cotton.
In the summer, the bumpy texture is very comfortable and popular.
