Fun! Japan Malaysia has hosted a gathering party at Aragan Yokocho Japanese Restaurant on 19 August 2017. The theme for this gathering party was Japanese traditional summer wear - Yukata and Japan online shopping experience.

Yukata is a Japanese summer wear worn by both men and women. The name of Yukata comes from "yu" (bath) and "katabira" (under clothing) which used to be worn after bath. However, nowadays Japanese like to wear the Yukata to attend the festival especially during summer season.

In addition, we are proud to have WOAH! JAPAN(http://www.woahjapan.com/) to support us in this gathering party. They have shipped their Top 10 most sellable items in their online shopping website directly from Japan, especially for this gathering party. We have received very good responses from our Fun! Japan members on their products.

Let’s look at these photos taken during our gathering party.
