All the kimono are beautifully decorated, and heavy too. Depending weither the person wearing it is a Geisha/Geiko or a Maiko (in training), the sleeves vary in lenght, the patterns are different and the obi is different too (also tied differently).

These are two bamboo umbrella's and in the reflection you can see several other kimono.

Fancy hair decorations and very fancy fans.

This installation showed a geisha during various times of the day.

The lower kimono is one of a maiko, the pattern is less complicated and the obi is different too. The top kimono is on of a geisha/geiko.

Maiko enjoying their tea time.

The details on some of the fabrics are pretty rad!
