Published on 06.29.2016 An introductory video of artisans in Yokohama, Kanagawa.
This video introduces the artisans of traditional Japanese clothing.
The “kimono” is known in many countries as the Japanese national costume. It is a sumptuous article of clothing that is finely hand-made from cutting to sewing.

Using a single sheet of cloth called “tanmono”, the artisans decide how to arrange the patterns on finished product and sew the kimono by hand. Kimono are mostly sewn in a straight line. The artisans required a certain level of skill to sew straightly.
Nowadays at many sightseeing spots, you can rent and try on kimono. If you have a chance, you should try on one of the skillfully created kimonos.
