A Guide to City Life ~ June ~
(1)Koromo_Gae (Changing Wardrobe)
As a traditional custom, Japanese change wardrobes twice a year in June and October at the turn of the season, and of course, hotels are not exception.
At Hotel New Otani Osaka, you will find hotel staff in a summer clothing after 1 June until 30 September every year. And also schools that introduce school uniform follow this custom and all students change their uniform into a seasonal one.
Likewise what kind of Kimono to wear depends on the season, and light Kimono with a single layer is suitable for early to mid-summer.
Yukata is a casual kimono which we generally wear only in summer and is usually made of cotton. Kimono is more elaborating and formal.
This has been the way how Japanese keep ourselves stay comfort and reduce sultriness for many years when the hot and humid weather dominates the country in summer, and also the way how Japanese enjoy the beauty of the season from the ancient time.
