Japanese traditional clothes!
In all eras of history, women are crazy about “Fashion”. In the old time of Japan, women wore Japanese traditional clothes – kimono- in their daily lives. They enjoyed fashion with changing colours and designs of kimono, and various patterns of coordinates according to seasons.
Since Japanese culture has been widely known all over the world, I guess that you also want to know how to wear kimono or what’s needed for wearing kimono. So, today I’ll explain that to you.
What to need for Kimono
To wear kimono, you will need some other items too, which are Hada-Juban (underwear), Naga-Juban (a long undergarment) and Obi (belt). You also need more small items, but I just listed up major ones below.
Hada- Juban (an underwear for Kimono)
Hada means skin in Japanese. This clothes are the first layer on your skin under Kimono.
Naga- Juban (a long undergarment for Kimono)
After wearing Hada- Juban, you wear Naga-Juban. You wear this for protecting Kimono from your sweat or directly touching your skin and prevent any damages on Kimono.
Obi is a major partner of Kimono. The Obi belt is used to wrap around Kimono and you also enjoy kimono fashion with folding it in various styles. You need to pick up Obi belt according to design, colour and quality of Kimono.
