For what  serves a KIMONO?  

Japan maintains an ancient culture, even with Westernization, Japanese fashion differs from the whole world.  Do you know the traditional Japanese clothing called the Kimono?  

Kimono [着物 Kimono] is a traditional Japanese garment made up of silk clothes, belts and various accessories.  Because it is an expensive and complex traditional clothing, it is not common to wear it day by day.  

Usually the Kimono is used in traditional and special occasions such as graduation, weddings, funerals, parties, traditional festivals, religious holidays, hanami and others.

Depending on the occasion, all Japanese have already worn a Kimono. Generally some shopkeepers and people who work in traditional places use the clothes.  Not to mention Geisha and other artists. 

Yukata is a more casual and thin type of kimono, usually composed of just one piece and a belt.  It is often used after bathing in traditional hotels ryokan and onsen. The word yukata literally means swimwear.
