Kimono - Japanese traditional clothing, but also Japanese national clothing. Kimono is a T-shaped wrapped front and garment, made of mostly rectangular fabrics, and sewed according to the set sleeve length, hem length and body specific cutting. According to the occasion and form, kimono can be divided into several varieties. These are represented by pattern and pattern position, fabric selection, decoration type and color.

Kimono has a set of fixed construction method, which is described by its own various terms and measurement units. Kimonos usually overlap the left collar and the right collar, unless the wearer happens to be deceased. Kimonos wear a wide belt, called a belt, which can be tied together in various ways according to gender, occasion and belt type.

Most variations of kimonos are worn with underwear called Nagajuban, which can be worn with Z ō RI or geta, although other forms of footwear can be worn, but not formal occasions. When wearing traditional shoes, such as Z ō RI or geta, always wear socks.

The word "ki mono" literally means "something to wear"; it derives from the automatic words ki (wear (on the shoulder) "and the noun mono (thing" thing "). The plural of kimono is kimono, because Japanese doesn't distinguish plural nouns, although sometimes it is used in English.

In modern times, kimonos are mainly used for formal occasions, but they can also be worn as daily clothes. Kimonos can be worn on important public holidays and festivals, weddings and funerals, but in modern times few people wear them.

As time went on, kimonos earned a reputation for being uncomfortable and hard to wear. However, in the past few decades, its popularity has picked up, and since the beginning of this century, the number of kimono Lovers has increased, making this kind of clothing a comfortable and fashionable one.

The people who wear kimonos most often - and in some cases every day - are elderly men and women, geisha, maiko and sumo wrestlers, who have to wear traditional Japanese clothing when they appear in public.
