History of the Japanese Kimono
Guiding Question: Why is the Japanese kimono as it is today?
I learned many things when researching this topic. First of all, I learned that the kimono started out as a simple top and trousers or a dress. The word “kimono” literally means clothing in Japanese characters. Later in the Heian period, a new method called straight-line-cut method developed. This method made the kimono look like a kosode kimono does today. In the Edo period, many different types and designs of making the kimono were developed. That’s why the kimono is as it is today.
I also learned many things from walking around the World History Fair. I learned that the Indian temple was shaped like a chariot. I learned that there were actually many different types of clothing you wore in Ancient Rome. I also learned about the different types of food Ancient Greek people ate.

I write almost everyday, and would never give it up. My latest story so far that I'm working on is going to be called Wanderer, but it is not even close to being finished and once it is, i still will have to edit it. I have won a novel contest, which I am so excited about because then all i have to do is edit the novel, find an editor and get it published. I hope to grow up to be an author. I like homework and school, but I do not like the stress of it all, which i find kinda strange. I do not work well in groups, all my teachers and close friends know this fact quite well. My nickname in a Manga club that I joined, located at the East Pikes Peak library, is Silence which fits me pretty well.
