About Yukata

The name 'yukata' comes from the word 'Yu'(bath) and 'katabira' (under clothing). Thousands of years ago, Court Nobles wore linen 'Yukatabira' draped loosely around the body after taking a bath. It gradually became worn by Japanese warriors and then public bath became popular. Today, the traditional Japanese yukata are widely used for everything from dances, casual clothing in the summer, to simple evening wear. The Yukata is a full length robe garment designed for lounging in a casual atmosphere.

About Kimono

The kimono is the traditional clothing of Japan. Kimono styles have changed significantly from one period of Japan's history to another, and today there are many different types of kimono worn by men, women, and children. The cut, color fabric, and decorations of a kimono may vary according to the sex, age, and marital status of the wearer, the season of the year, and the occasion for which the kimono is worn. All of our Kimono are designed for ease of use and cleaning and feature both contemporary and traditional designs.

About Happi

Happi Coats were traditionally worn by shop keepers. Traditionally the shop name or emblem or family crest was printed on the back of the coat . Today, Happi Coats can still be seen throughout Japan and are worn by some shop keepers and a shorter version, the Matsuri Happi, is worn by many during festivals. Our Happi Coats feature either the Matsuri (festival) designs or more traditional "Yukata" prints.
