How to Wear Kimono - Step 5

STEP 5: Wearing OBI sash

In this lesson, I introduce how to wear Nagoya-obi style, a daily use style.

This is called Nagoya obi, which indicates a type of shape and length, in stead of a type of textile.

Obi Holder

Hold the wider end of a Obi sash two times. Its width has to be the same as the Obi holder width.

Place the Obi holder one knuckle away from the end of the holded end.

Cover the bump of the obi holder with Obi scarf.

Cover the Obi holder and the obi scarf with the holded Obi end.
