Uchiwa in yukata for summer festivals and fireworks … I’m sure everyone has worn it at least once. When I was little, I wore a yukata and scooped cotton candy and goldfish at a food stall, and the excitement I felt was probably because I wore a yukata.
Even now, when I go out in a yukata, I always feel excited and special. Yukata is a fashionable and convenient kimono that can incorporate the latest fashion into the good old traditions. Please enjoy the charm of being able to easily coordinate regardless of the type!
Features of yukata
“Yukata” is summer! Many people think of it. Yukata is a summer kimono, so it has many features that make you feel comfortable in the summer.
Unlike other kimonos, yukata is characterized by being able to be worn lightly without layering.
Since a yukata like a piece of cloth is wrapped around the body and worn, the structure is such that the wind can easily enter through the gaps in the chest and chest.
Easy to wash
Yukata, which is easy to sweat in the hot summer, is also easy to wash.
Kimono made of linen and yukata made of cotton can be worn every day and washed every day, and recently some are made of chemical fiber, so it seems to dry quickly.
How to wash a yukata
All you have to do is take off your yukata after you get home, dissolve the fashionable detergent in the washbasin or washbasin while you are in the bath, and put on the yukata that is easily folded along the seams!
Rinse when you get out of the bath, wrap it in a large towel, dehydrate it in the washing machine for about 30 seconds, and then dry it.
In the summer, if you dry it in a well-ventilated place such as a balcony at night, it will usually be dry the next day, so you can cut it cleanly.
For those of us who usually wear clothes, when we wear a yukata, we can enjoy a slightly different and extraordinary atmosphere.
Not only at festivals and fireworks, but also when you walk around the city, you can change the atmosphere around you just by wearing a yukata. Many people may feel that wearing a yukata gives them a sense of relaxation.
It may be a unique feature of yukata that people who wear a different atmosphere and those around them can enjoy it.
Enjoy the accessories around the yukata
I also admire older people wearing yukatas coolly, and children’s yukatas and men’s yukatas are also wonderful. Yukata that anyone from children to adults can easily enjoy wearing can be dressed in many ways by arranging accessories around the yukata such as obi, clogs, and sandals.
Yukata starter kid, which is a set of yukata and everything around it, is also sold by mail order, but small items around yukata can also be used for clothes, so you can match it with yukata and clothes in various ways. I recommend you to try it.
Geta and sandals
Geta and sandals, which are worn according to the yukata, are indispensable points for fashionable feet.
Although it may not be a conspicuous part, there are many elements in the material of the hanao and clogs that can be glimpsed to tighten the yukata.
When choosing sandals and clogs, it is important to match them with the color of the obi. In addition, clogs made by remaking the old “Yukata” are also popular as fashionable accessories that cannot be found anywhere else.
It is no exaggeration to say that the impression of “yukata” is determined by the obi. Even with the same yukata, if you change the color of the obi and match the obidome, the impression of the yukata will change dramatically.
Even if you don’t have many yukatas, you can wear them as if you had many yukatas just by arranging the obi and obi fried.
I think that there are many people who usually coordinate accessories such as combs and hairpins that match the yukata with their clothes.
On the other hand, colorful accessories such as silver accessories and candies, which are usually used only for clothes, may look good when combined with “Yukata”. It’s also fashionable to match your own obidome with a yukata by matching the leather straps and silver accessories.
In such a case …
You may want to go to the bathroom while wearing a yukata. Toilet in “Yukata” is surprisingly difficult for both women and men. A clothespin is very convenient when you go to the bathroom wearing a yukata.
It is very convenient to put a few large clothespins in your bag. When you go to the bathroom with a yukata, be very careful not to let the hem of “Yukata” stick to the bottom or rub it against the wall.
When you enter the toilet, first turn over the dirty part of the “yukata” with clothespins and fasten it. For females, grab the edge of the hem from the bottom and lift it up so that it is sandwiched between the upper part of the obi. If you have clothespins at this time, you can keep the hem in place without forcibly pushing it into the obi and losing your clothes.
When wearing a yukata, there are various situations where it is easy to get dirty, such as washing your hands and eating. In such cases, it is very convenient to have clothespins to stop the clothespins or to keep the napkins and rugs on. But be careful not to forget to remove the clothespin at the end.
