Everything consists of smaller units and only one tiny composition part can affect the overall results. Japanese culture often focuses on minute details. Kimono tradition is no exception. It epitomizes the saying, "The devil is in the details."

The shape of Japanese kimono costume has not changed over 1200 years. Kimono’s total product lifecycle management tradition was a well established system including its shape from the ancient times. Kimono is an outfit with so much meticulous deliberation in every detail, so as not to waste any fabric. It is designed to last for a long time, and it can be recycled.

The program will introduce the wisdom within Japanese kimono culture including some of the rare traditional craftsmanship techniques. Additionally, the relationship between kimono and Japanese traditional dance will be shown and explained with actual live performance sessions.
