Korin Belt

  • The act of putting on a kimono can be compared to art, a dance, or even a sort of ritual. One of the most common misconceptions about Japanese kimono that a complete outfit is composed of only a kimono and obi. In truth, to wear a kimono in a culturally respectful manner there are a variety of accessories that are hidden within the kimono and obi that give the kimono their elegant presentation and form.

    The most universal kimono accessories are koshihimo. Koshihimo are the long cords that are used to physically tie a kimono onto a persons body. As a quick rule of thumb the more formal the type of kimono, the more accessories and parts for wearing it.
