Yukata are a kind of kimono like clothing.
They’re thinner and often made from cotton.
They’re much easier to wear than kimono but they still have a decorative obi – or waist band – that you have to tie.
You can buy them easily during the summer months.
Even UNIQLO has their own range – for men, women and kids!
They’re often worn to summer festivals at night.
They keep you cool and allow you freedom of movement to bust some moves at the traditional Bon Odori dance.
Taiko drums are played and people dance around the main stage or through the streets.
