When dashthegnome and I stopped by Uwajimaya we were looking through the gift area and found a few suprises!

So if any of you cosplayers need kimonos or oriental patterned tops, slippers or even.....uh Tabe? Hold on.....
*google.......*
TABI! They just got some Tabi in from japan. So go on over to Beaverton and buy them if you need them for your costume.

They had a few pairs of geta but nothing to get excited about.
Theres more to the store than Pocky and manga! Whoo!

Uwajimaya rocks in every way imaginable.  Japanese candy should be illegal, the stuff is like crack.

I had some Hi-chew a couple of weeks ago and it was just awesome, I think it has some vitamins in it or something.
And now I'm a catgirl?

The voice of the one I love
was all I could hear as I lay broken in the darkness
My own voice faltered
My wings no longer had the strength to fly

Uwajimaya is selling yukatas, not kimonos.  There is a difference.

Kimonos are worn with an obi and sash, while yukatas are just worn with a sash.  Yukatas are also tied on much differently, and are only worn in one light layer.  Kimonos, depending upon how fancy they are, can go anywhere from two layers to fifty.

Yeah, I'm looking into making/buying my own kimono to wear, but tying an obi is extremely difficult, and I suck enough at tying my shoes as it is. ^.^;
No, I'm not insane.  I'm just... happy.

Yes! I knew someone would know what those things were!
Good, now I can be more accurate!
I didn't want to bother with a long description when I could just be wrong for awhile.

Now what do you call the little short sleeved tops that look like Ranma's?
Shirts?

I have no clue.  I just know the difference between yukata's and kimono's from costume experience. ^.^;

Ranma's shirt is Chinese, hence my lack of knowledge as well. ^.^;

lol, when i first moved here to portland  i found out what a basement was....(i was 8) when i was in 7th grade, i found out about uwajimaya, and anime. im glad i found it. my mom kindof likes the place, but so freaking expenisivey. lol. speically the imported cds. i can understand why, but still, in port angeles washington, theres this place called ANIME HOUSE. and they sell imported cds for like...20 max, 10, and for cds with like 5 songs on it for 5 bucks. at uwajimaya, in that one book store i forget whats it called, they sel theyre cds with 5 songs on it for 20 dollars. wtf. lol, oh well. (at least i saw a cd like it there. so yea. im only saying). so if you have alot ALOT of money go there to get good stuff.
mention this to me and watch the weather change.

I must be one of the few if not only person who has a business card of Kinokuniya in their wallet.  Kinokuniya is the bookstore in Uwajimaya so it's basically the same address.

Anime House? That's a good price for CD's. *takes note* Yes, Kinokunia is way too expensive... But considering the price in Japan, it's understandable. I mainly go there to get graphic novels. And but letter sets w

Once again it falls to me for the Uwajimaya info, but that is why I started the thread. Since the adress has already been listed I'll give other info.

If you need a bus you need route #54.
Here is Uwajimaya's site.
