Clothing in Japan
The Japanese Kimono is a garment that
men and women from Japan wore from the early time (645-724) to today. It comes
from the Chinese p'ao robe. The Kimono is an ankle high gown with long and wide
sleeves and a v-neck. There is nothing to button or tie, it laps left over right
across the front. It is fastened at the waist by an obi, which is a wide sash
or belt made of satin or a stiff silk material.
