I’ve never never ever dress myself in a Traditional outfit before, let alone a Traditional Japanese Yukata! But I was more than thankful for this opportunity to loan this outfit from Aki (yukatahouse) and walk around at Sakura Day @ The Racecourse event to experience how it feels like to be in a traditional outfit. Read on to enjoy some photos I took at the Racecourse!

About Sakura Day @ The Racecourse 2015

Sakura Day @ The Racecourse traditionally celebrates Japanese culture in association with the Panasonic sponsoring of the Kranji Mile, the flagship feature race on that day. There was special origami-making demonstration, traditional Japanese musical performances, a sake tasting experience, and a photo opportunity with a selection of the Turf Belles. 

Some of us also get to bet on the horses during the race to have a feel of betting excitement. It was my first time betting as well! I also got to know that most (if not all?) of the betting earnings are donated back to the society, quoting the building of esplanade for example.

And here I am in the Traditional Yukata! I loaned this outfit from YukataHouse and the rental rates they offer are really affordable. Plus, the outfit is really comfortable and airy, great for Singapore’s weather!
