A standard yukata ensemble consists of a cotton undergarment (juban), yukata, obi ( dài, おび, , literally "sash"), bare feet, sandals (geta), a foldable or fixed hand fan, and a carry bag (kinchaku - [drawstring bag]).

This was at the dokomi in germany. Very beautiful & she's got cute little bare feet.

A yukata (浴衣 yù ​yī) is a Japanese garment (bathrobe), a casual summer kimono usually made of cotton or synthetic fabric, and unlined. Yukata are worn by both men and women. Like other forms of traditional Japanese clothing, yukata are made with straight seams and wide sleeves.

Men's yukata are distinguished by the shorter sleeve extension of approximately 10cm from the armpit seam, compared to the longer 20cm sleeve extension in women's yukata.

A standard yukata ensemble consists of a cotton undergarment (juban), yukata, obi  ( dài, おび, , literally "sash"), bare feet, sandals (geta), a foldable or fixed hand fan, and a carry bag (kinchaku
- [drawstring bag]).


The Yukata is a casual light cotton kimono for wearing in summer. Japanese women can, with some practice, put this kimono on unassisted.

Kinchaku are used by both men and women to carry cellphones, sunglasses, wallets and tissue. For men, an optional hat or derby may also be worn to protect the head from the sun.

Yukata literally means bath(ing) clothes, although their use is not limited to after-bath wear. Yukata are a common sight in Japan during the hot summer months (starting in July).

As with kimono, the general rule with yukata is that younger people wear bright, vivid colors and bold patterns, while older people wear dark, matured colors and dull patterns. A child may wear a multicolored print and a young woman may wear a floral print, while an older woman would confine herself to a traditional dark blue with geometric patterns. Men in general may wear solid dark colors. Since the late 1990s, yukata have experienced a revival.


Yukata design depend on cool feeling which is the raw material topic in the industry this summer (100% cotton / polyester).

The left side of the yukata is wrapped over the right side (commonly reversed with right over left when dressing a body for a funeral) and secured with an obi sash tied in a bow with the excess or with the koshi- himo and traditionally the bow is placed in the back.

Traditionally bows in the front represented a prostitute. In private, such as after a bath, the yukata may be simply belted. Yukata are often worn with wooden sandals called geta, but tabi are not usually worn.
