Ginza Yukata Garden 2018
- Slip into It, Tie It, and Fasten It - an Easy-To-Wear Yukata for Everyone
Tokyo is in the midst of the "tsuyu" season, when gentle rainfalls continue for more than a month.The hot, summer season is approaching Japan.
While summer in Japan is known to be humid and hot, Japan also has cultivated ancient wisdom to get through it while staying cool.
"Yukata," the traditional cotton kimono is one of them.
Yukata are quite different from kimono. While kimono that is often made from silk is worn for formal occasions, yukata was originally made to wear indoors after bathing.
But in recent years, yukata has made a reappearance with modern, stylish designs and fabrics, sparking a trend for people to wear it outside during summer festivals.
"Easy-to-wear yukata" is our top recommendations this summer, as it allows anyone to wear it without ease.
The comfort of wearing a long-sleeved cotton yukata is soothing during the hot summer season.
