There was a Japanese wedding at our hotel in Hakone. The bride wore a ceremonial kimono much like this one. It was a huge and beautiful wedding. We wanted to stay and watch, but our bus was leaving. We on our way to Atami and Kyoto.
Japanese famous actress, Yu Aoi,her kimono style is very very nice!
Scan Scans from book: 300 years of Japanese women’s appearance, kimono, kanzashi etc. An incredible set of shots of a tayuu (courtesan) dress. The opulant heavily-embroidered uchikake (outer kimono) and obi appear to date to the century.
