    Re: Do You Consider Japanese Geta a Casual Wear?

    It is worth noting that Shinku is incredibly strange

    I have seen about 14 pairs of geta all year on the street (discounting the week of summer festivals, farmer's kabuki, and my trip to Kyoto's geisha district with my parents). One worn by an old man on a pilgrimage and the rest on women in kimono.

    I have seen 500,000,000 pairs of high heels.

    You do the math.

    No... people don't wear geta casually.

    Japan is a completely modernized nation obsessed with high-end footwear that is uncomfortable, expensive and likely to break your ankles.

    Generally speaking: kimono is worn for special occaisions only... and geta are only worn with kimono (aside from a random oldster who doesn't particularly care that he looks "old-fashioned").
