Kimono is a traditional Japanese loose-fitting outfit with a belt and wide sleeves.
How to buy a kimono in Tokyo
Traditionally kimono is a hand-made outfit and it is decorated with paintings by hand as well. To sew one kimono a master needs 36 centimeters wide and 12 meters long silk or sateen cloth. Obi belt is an important element of the dress - it shows the status of kimono owner.
