This modern kimono for women will immerse you in the magical world of the country of the rising sun
The Japanese kimono is an iconic garment of the archipelago. The literal translation of kimono actually is "clothing". It is defined by a certain number of codes and to wear it, you have to follow several ordered steps.
Start by putting on tabi socks with split toes which, besides being traditional, are really comfortable. Then, put on the traditional Japanese underwear: susuyoke and nagajuban. You can now put on your kimono making sure that the collar of the nagajuban appears.
To close it, fold the left side of the kimono over the right side (the reverse is reserved for the deceased during funeral ceremonies, just like the white kimono). To make your kimono fit, you just have to tie the koshi imo belt, then the obi belt which will mark your waist and feminize your kimono with a straight cut.
The patterns printed at the bottom of this Japanese clothing piece are of a Japanese crane (bird of good omen) and flowers, very heavily praised in Japan. The hanami, a spring festival, celebrates the contemplation of sakura (cherry blossoms).
