Personal Appearance : Traditional Japanese Clothing

Japanese are very concerned on their personal appearance. For Japanese, their clothing worn is the first impression for other people, an impression of showing who they are, how wealthy they are and their social status. There are various type of clothing in Japan. For example Furisode, Hamonji, Iromuji, Komon, Edo Komon, Yukata, Hakama and others. However, The two of the most common clothing are YUKATA and KIMONO. Yukata is a casual way of dressing in Japan where as for Kimono, it is worn by both men and women. Kimonos for men are mainly in dark. Kimonos can be worn in formal wear and casual way as well. Here are some pictures that I would like to share with you about Kimono.
