Guest Book
This is a Japanese highly formal kimono worn only by a bride or at a stage performance called Ushikake. It is often heavily brocaded and is supposed to be worn outside the actual kimono and obi, as a sort of coat. One therefore never ties the obi around the uchikake. It is supposed to trail along the floor, this is also why it is heavily padded along the hem. The uchikake of the bridal costume is either white or very colorful often with red as the base color. The end of sleeve to the other end of sleeve is 51.5" wide when it is open and it is 71.5 " long.
