As kimonos are not worn regularly, it is quite easy to forget how to wear one and tie the belt so  she quickly phones the school to get some lessons.  In the second TV ad as she is  getting ready to go to her kimono lesson her boyfriend comments on how she seems a lot more excited than when she gets ready to go out with him.

    What’s the name of the actress? She seems familiar? The gaijin is the typical dorky type you see all over Japan teaching English
