Changing Yukata!!!
At Ginza Mitsukoshi Department Store 








▲ Yukata? Kimono?

We have already asked the staffs at Ginza Mitsukoshi for everyone!

JAPANKURU: What is the difference of Yukata and kimono?
Staff of Ginza Mitsukoshi: (Without hesitation) The material of clothes and fabric

Oh!!!! 
Yukata, originally was simply used as "pajamas" at Ryokan.
In summer, it has then became the casual wear and built up its status and position on fashion.

Comparing the thin and easy-to-wear yukata,
kimono is kind of a formal clothes.
The method of wearing kimono is called "Kitsuke" (着付け)
If you wanna put it on correctly and politely,
an expert of "Kitsuke" is needed to help!
From the material of fabric and lining of clothes, 
the wearing order and rules, 
basically it might take more than two hours to complete the whole process.

Feel confused?
Again,
Kimono = A "formal" wear for ceremonies
Yukata = A"casual" wear for summer
Do you get it?
