‘Get out of Wuhan University, Japanese in kimono!’ Actually, who was blamed were mother and daughter, both Chinese.

It is an annually good time to see cherry in Wuhan University now. A family, one male and three female, were posing for Photography. But such a normal move caused an abnormal accusation from more than ten people, most of which are students.

The mother and daughter immediately stopped posing, their face turning red for embarrassment. They took off their kimono and left soon.

Why should the mother and daughter feel embarrassed? Is it a shame to wear special clothes, because they belong to another culture but China? Cultural Revolution has been over for long time.

In China, people possess more patriotism than nationalism. They are proud for China’s progress in the past 60 years, also keep their caution for facing challenges. To scold at others to show off your nationalism is not a proper way to present China’s image.

These screaming students aren’t bringing any glory to their homeland.

These 10 dumbs had the choice to express quietly their idea, they could explain why they feel uncomfortable with this. But they choosed to shout and to express themselve with a verbal violence. This is pure hate and stupid . I saw several mixed wedding in foreign countries where both men and women (one were not chinese) weared chinese costume, and I think it was their choice that must be respected. If people cannot wear what they want, what 's next? ANd sorry, I really dont think this woman and her daughter were supporting any japanese nationalism.

I imagine it's because a significant number of Chinese see wearing a kimono in spring as being about as cool in China as wearing a Nazi uniform for Oktoberfest is in the West.

Why don't they force all cherry trees out of campus since they hate Japan so much?

Those people are insane. Fortunately, the mother and the daughter aren't Japanese, otherwise, they'll have negative feelings towards Chinese people. Blind nationalism. Shame on those Chinese accusers!

lol, there are always people who cannot distinguish between patriotism and blind and foolish nationalism. The interesting part is that kimonos were adopted from T'ang Dynasty Hanfu. The ten people who condemned the two women wearing Kimono did just boo their own cultural heritage.

But now kimono has become purely Japanese culture. You will think of Japan when you see it.
