I have a question on what is proper in regards to wearing a kimono. My daughter’s grandmother in Japan sent her a very elaborate kimono last year for…well I’m not sure what for but we’ve only really used it once. I don’t know exactly the type of kimono it is but you can see it here.
Tomorrow the local Japanese charter school is holding an Obon festival and I’m going to be taking my daughter there and thought it would be nice to let her wear the kimono. Initially I was going to just remove the outer jacket because of the heat, but apparently it’s going to be pretty hot out here tomorrow and I’m not sure she’d be comfortable in the heavy kimono. There is a very light weight pink kimono underneath that I believe is called a nagajuban. The collar is lined with a fabric close to style of the outer kimono.
My question is, would it be ok for her to just wear that? I know it’s just a small festival but I don’t want her walking around in ‘underwear’ should there be anyone there who would knows what they’re looking at. Thanks!
