UCHIKAKE the Another Wedding Kimono. This beautiful UCHUKAKE is usually brocaded or embroidered with the motif of congratulations such as cranes, pines, and a bounty of flowers. It is believed that UCHIKAKE started to be worn by the high-class samurai family women in the Muromachi era (1336–1573). During the Edo era (1603–1868), UCHIKAKE became a more common kimono for the high-class women like the oiran in Yoshiwara, and since then it has been recognized as a wedding kimono.

Uchikake ~ a highly formal kimono worn by a bride or at a stage performance. It is supposed to be worn outside the actual kimono (called kakeshita or kosode) and obi (sash), as a sort of coat.
