China: Taking Kimono Picture

Two Chinese women were driven away by around 10 Chinese onlookers when they were taking photos of cherry blossom with their Kimono outfit in Wuhan University. In a Sohu poll, more than half of the votes support the onlookers’ action. Fauna from ChinaSMACK has translated the discussion.


  • Maybe in many people’s views that they onlookers action was wrong,but in my own oppinion they onlooks action is right. As a chinese,we should not forget the history and how japanese hurt us …

    I think it was a very ignorant, foolish and unwise move for these two women to wear kimonos in China; whatever unfair treatment they received they brought upon themselves. Knowing the history between China and Japan, it was in very poor taste for them to wear kimonos in public.

    However, China and Japan have a huge trade relationship and their economies are interdependent. Therefore, China needs to be a bit more diplomatic and show a little more restraint in the future.

    I wonder what would happen if I, a Chinese woman living in Japan, were to wear traditional Chinese clothing while viewing sakura blossoms in Japan. Hm….
