This is a scale model of Murasaki, Genji’s one true love, wearing a kazami kimono (formal dress for the daughter of a noble family).

The Kyoto Costume Museum in Japan showcases scale reproductions of traditional Japanese costumes, presented using an array of scenes that visually retell ‘The Tale of Genji’.

    Thanks, Kellie.
    Though it’s a few years old and a bit basic, this is still one of my favourite photos.
    I have an 8×10 of it hanging on my wall and it is a real burst of colour.
