The kimono is a Japanese traditional garment from the Edo period, that Japanese people used to wear before being influenced by the Western culture. Nowadays, kimono are still worn on special occasions such as weddings, funerals, tea ceremonies, and other special events, such as summer festivals. Professional sumo wrestlers are required to wear traditional Japanese clothing whenever appearing in public so they are often seen in kimono.

Depending on the occasion and the person’s age and marital status, there are various different types of kimono for use at different times and on different occasions. For example Yukata is a casual version of kimono made of cotton or synthetic fabric that it is often worn at summer festivals, especially by women. Houmongi is the most popular kimono in Japan and it is often worn at a wedding party or a tea ceremony. Mofuku is the formal wear to a funeral of a close relative or friend.

Women’s kimono are traditionally made of silk and sometimes polyester, and usually feature beautiful designs that include broidery, yuzen painting (a type of painting done on Japanese traditional clothes) and dying in various colours.
The colours used for men’s kimonos are more subtle and the fabrics are usually mate.

An ideal place to try on a kimono is Kyoto. Many shops there offer rental kimonos and various packages that might include a makeover or a photo shoot.
If you wish to buy a kimono, you can purchase it at numerous specialised stores in Kyoto, or in department stores and shopping malls across the country.
