Kimono is Japanese traditional fashion and culture.
All Japanese people used to wear Kimono every day long time ago, and Kimono was our clothes.
But we wear Kimono only occasionally now, especially on special occasions such as weddings, new years, come of age day cerebration, or tea ceremony.
And Kimono we wear on those special occasions are really gorgeous.
Depends on the seasons, Kimono fabric can be silk, cotton, or wool.
Kimono Obi Belt is inevitable to wear Kimono.
Obi belts are quite wide and stands out in the center of our body, so it is very important.
There are different kinds of Obi belts, called Nagoya-Obi, Fukuro-Obi, Han Haba- Obi.
Han-Haba Obi is used for daily Kimono or Yukata (summer cotton Kimono), and casual.
Nagoya-Obi also can be used for daily Kimono, or Japanese cultural practice such as tea ceremony or flower arrangement.
Fukuro-Obi is the most gorgeous belt and is for weddings or cerebrations.
When you look at Fukuro-Obi, you will see how gorgeous, shiny it is and the pattern is an amazing art.
When you touch Fukuro-Obi, you can feel that Fukuro-Obi is really precious.
Fukuro-Obi can cost a fortune, sometimes over one million yen.
Fukuro Obi is woven with shiny gold, silver thread, silk thread by artisans.
This is totally Japanese amazing culture.
