Presentation CULTURE
AnimeFest 2019
Saturday 7:30PM for 1h in P4
With dozens of trips to Japan under our belt, the founders of Tangerine Mountain have a wealth of experience and knowledge to share about travel in Japan! Come join us in this relaxed, mostly Q and A session, and bring any and all of your questions about living in/ visiting / studying in Japan. Typical topics covered include: the best time to travel, how to save money, how to survive when you have food allergies, how to respectfully experience shrines and temples, how phones work in Japan, what brand of sake to drink (and when to stop), how to shinkansen, how to survive Japanese business dinners, the texture of tarantula tempura, how to do laundry without setting your pants on fire, and more!

Tangerine Mountain Imports & Designs specializes in bringing authentic imported kimono, wafuku, and Japanese accessories straight to congoers!

We save you the airfare to Japan by going back and forth two to three times a year to work directly with the people and businesses through which we acquire the best pieces at affordable prices.

We are the only kimono vendor in the country that includes an obi with every kimono purchase, with Kimono+Obi sets starting at only $30! Because of this, our customers are able to walk away with a wearable outfit for a fraction of the cost charged by other kimono vendors in our industry. We are also the only US-based kimono vendor that regularly sells haori, kimono and yukata 福袋 (fukubukuro) at every event in which we participate.

We also live our inclusivity statement with every customer interaction. Unlike some of our competitors, we do NOT insist people only try on pieces that match their gender appearance, age, or marital status. While we do teach the traditional ways of wearing kimono with every interaction (e.g. sleeve differences in men’s vs. women’s kimono; furisode are traditionally worn by unmarried women, etc.), we firmly believe that our customers are the experts in their own gender identity, sexual orientation, relationships, ability/disability, and bodies. Everyone is welcome to try on whatever they want, and it is our job to make them look and feel fabulous while doing so!

We are a very laid-back, happy group of people here at Tangerine Mountain, and we are willing to go above and beyond to make sure our customers have an "気持ちいい" experience whenever they shop with us. Whether people are looking for their first komon, a Taisho-era furisode, or a hand painted and embroidered uchikake to fill out their collection, we have something that can satisfy every customer's needs (and budget!).
20 members have this on their schedule.
