What is Kimono?
Kimono is traditional Japanese outer garment. While Western clothes are always worn for daily activities, people wear kimono on special occasions such as ceremonies and parties. There are several kinds of ceremonial kimono. The prime ceremonial Kimono for unmarried women is the gorgeous long-sleeved kimono called “furisode” and for married is the black fixed-sleeve kimono with five family crests. Meanwhile men wear the Japanese half-coat and pleated loose-fitting trousers called “hakama”.
It is a standard to fasten a sash over kimono, to wear Japanese socks called “tabi”, and to Japanese sandals called “zori” when going out.
