Do you know jinbei?

It looks like kimono but instead of one long clothe, jinbei is a two-piece with kimono top and half shorts, and usually made of cotton or hemp.

In Japan, it is one of the popular father’s day gifts this year.






It was traditionally a men’s night ware but recently often worn by young children and women as home ware.

It’s going to be perfect for firework display or summer festivals which are usually held in night time.

Just as pets owner put Santa Clause’s costumes on their pets , sometimes Japanese pets are put jinbei.
