伝統的な、艷やかな着物をきちんと着こなして歩く女性は美しいものですが、それだけに声をかけづらく、近寄り難い雰囲気もあリます。
そんな彼女達でも現代を象徴するようなPADなんかをいじっていたりすると、ちよっとだけホッとして、距離も縮まった気がします。
『粋』という言葉は、身なリや振る舞いが洗練されているという意味らしいですが、伝統の衣装に身を包みながらも、伝統に縛られず最新技術を使いこなす、その立ち振る舞いもまた粋なんでしようね


An elegant woman walking in a lustrous kimono looks very beautiful, but she also appears unapproachable and difficult to speak to. However, if a woman of that type were to use a tablet computer, something that symbolizes the present day, I would feel relieved and she would appear less distant.
The word ‘stylish’ refers to somebody who is refined in both appearance and bearing, but I think that the behavior of somebody who wears traditional clothes, but has mastered the latest technology, can also be described as ‘stylish’.
