The Annual Kimono Exhibition is hosted by the Japanese Culture Center and sponsored by the Japanese Arts Foundation. The exhibition will present 20 never before featured historical kimono from the Ikka Nakashima Sensei Collection.

Nakashima Sensei was the second woman ever to receive The Order of the Rising Sun, Gold and Silver Rays award. This is the highest honor given outside the Imperial family. The Emperor of Japan personally presented her with this award in Tokyo for her tireless efforts and dedication to promoting Japanese arts and culture.

Stop by on Saturday for a kimono photo booth to learn how to wear them!

A small donation to the Japanese Arts Foundation (a 501©3 non-for-profit organization) is recommended. All proceeds will help support Japanese arts creation, education, and events throughout Chicago!
