JAPAN

The kimono is a Japanese traditional garment worn by women, men and children. The word “kimono”, which literally means a “thing to wear” (ki “wear” andmono “thing”),has come to denote these full-length robes.

Kimonos are T-shaped, straight-lined robes worn so that the hem falls to the ankle, with attached collars and long, wide sleeves. Kimonos are wrapped around the body, always with the left side over the right (except when dressing the dead for burial), and secured by a sashcalled an obi, which is tied at the back. Kimonos are generally worn with traditional footwear (especially zōri orgeta) and split-toe socks (tabi).
