The Olympic Games have finished this year. Japan created a kimono for every country that participated in the 2020 games. The link below will take you to let you see what was designed for each country. Culture, history and architectural heritage were all thought about when the designs were created.

I have really enjoyed looking at the individual kimonos and reading about each one.

So interesting to see them, how beautiful. Of course the tulips and windmill made it easy to pick out the Netherlands :)

These are beautiful! Each one is so unique. Thanks for sharing this site. I've been to just a handful of these countries and some I've never heard of. The world is such a big beautiful place. I would love to travel more!! I'm scheduled to go to Greece next March - - I hope Covid lets me go.
