Kimono Demonstration with Yuri and Asuka Iijima

October 7, 2023 @ 3:45 pm - 4:45 pm

Kimono Demonstration

The history of a kimono-like garment in Japan extends back to the Heian period (794-1192). It took the name “kosode” meaning small sleeves by the Edo period (1603-1868). The name “kimono” meaning wearing thing became the word of choice that stuck from the Meiji period (1868-1912) onward. As a quintessential representation of Japanese culture with a rich history, the kimono illustrates many faces of the Japanese identity.

In Yuri and Asuka’s demonstration, you will see a demonstration of how to wear four different types of kimono:

  • Komon for female – a casual every-day type kimono
  • Houmongi for married female – formal kimono
  • Kimono and Hakama for men – formal wear for men
  • Furisode – for unmarried female – often worn for coming of age (Seijin)
