China, wearing a kimono and having her photograph taken: arrested

-

A Chinese woman was stopped by police and detained for hours on charges of “causing fights and riots” wearing a Japanese kimono to be photographed while walking around the street in Suzhou city. The woman explained that she is a cosplayer, that is, that she wore the costume and a wig for fun to identify with a popular character from the manga series shōnen Summer Time Rendering. While she and the photographer were busy making the shots, she was approached by a police officer, as evidenced by a video posted on social media. A young Chinese woman was taken away by local police in Suzhou last Wednesday because she was wearing a kimono. “If you would be wearing Hanfu (Chinese traditional clothing), I never would have said this, but you are wearing a kimono, as a Chinese. You are Chinese!” pic.twitter.com/et8vWOferQ— Manya Koetse (@manyapan) August 15, 2022 In the video, we see the woman justifying herself with the agent who, however, denies her not wearing the traditional Chinese Hanfu dress: “If I had come wearing I wouldn’t say this Hanfu. But you’re wearing a kimono, like a Chinese. You’re a Chinese! Or aren’t you? “. At this point the woman asks why she is being scolded and screamed, and the agent explains that she is suspected of “causing quarrels and unrest”, an accusation generally reserved for dissidents, journalists and activists. The video ends after the woman is taken away from her. The young woman reported that she was in a street famous for its Japanese restaurants when the agent approached her. She then she was taken to the police station, interrogated for about five hours, until one in the morning. Her phone was checked and her kimono was confiscated. She was also told not to report the incident online, where the video was instead seen by tens of millions of people and sparked heated discussions on social media.
