There was an eye opening change in kids' yukata this year!
The 'obi' (sash) was replaced with soft see-through fabric.
The 'geta' (wooden clogs or sandals) were replaced with colourful high heel or flat comfy sandals.
And, the straight line form of yukata has been transformed to the Cinderella dress style.
Even the 'Hello Kitty' brand introduced lovely yukata as pictures below.
Miss it, love it, and wait for summer next year.
