Yesterday, I had a happy news after a long time surprising the whole country.
It is the news of engagement announcement of “Princess Mako” who is a member of the royal family.
There are lots of news that seems to overwhelm the dark news and the tensions between countries,
It was a warm news to calm the mind.
When it comes to royal wedding of the Imperial family, it is not limited to Japan that wants to bless from the heart why regardless of age and sex.
There are surprisingly many countries where the imperial system (royal family system) remains, and as the news of royal weddings such as Britain, the Netherlands, Bhutan and Thailand, the scene where the media of each country runs together for interview is seen many.
Is it because they have been longing for the existence of “King” or “Prince” when people are small …
Well, attention will be gained by what your wife will call when you become a Japanese royal wedding.
I would still think of the figure to be calling you a “twelve-layered ceremonial kimono” Japanese tradition?
In recent years, or actress plays a princess of the fairy tale in the CM, seems to be a popular music video by Japanese artist is singing wearing a “twelve-layered ceremonial kimono”.
From the name of “twelve-layered ceremonial kimono”, and say whether the fling also 12 pieces of clothing, does not seem to be the case.
Roughly speaking, it looks like 8 pieces instead of 12 pieces. Actually, there is also a meaning in the overlapping color, and that combination expressing the season feeling which is also called the attack color (Kasane Irorome) can not be counted. It seems that in the past it was wearing more than 12. It seems that the gradation peeking from the sleeve was fashionable and I feel the elegant sense of the Japanese.
This “twelve-layered ceremonial kimono”. It looks very glossy and fantastic, but as it gets wrapped around it, it seems like its weight and hardships.
“Twelve-layered ceremonial kimono” of the Heian period has been said that it was around 10kg, but the current “twelve-layered ceremonial kimono” is about roughly 20kg and!
The difference seemed to be in the weight of the fabric, at that time the thread was much thinner, and the cloth woven with that thread was thinner than it was now. Since wedding dresses and white dresses are about 5 kg, they are still heavy.
Recently dress dare couture and kimono in general wedding, it seems Some bride to be calling you a “twelve-layered ceremonial kimono” in the fact that because the precious opportunity.
The only difference with the pure white dress and Iroda multiplied, because of the tightening is less dressing, some bride customers that towards the “twelve-layered ceremonial kimono” was easy.
It’s a special day, so it’s not bad to experience this weight.
Although I was out of talk, the wedding ceremony of ‘Princess Mako’ seems to be still ahead but I would like to warmly watch as a blessing as one of the people.
