Extra large and long cotton Japanese kimono.
The Sumo sized Japanese kimono measures 30 inches from shoulder seam to shoulder seam and about 62 inches long.
The background is black with white Japanese characters and comes with a simple matching tie sash.
This is also available in a medium sized Hapi coat (not pictured) in a 42 inch length for $45.00.
Made in Japan. 100% cotton can be machine washed in cold water, gentle cycle or dry cleaned.
These characters on the kimono and hapi coat are a part of the story of "Heike Monogatari", and it was translated into English and published several times as "The Tale of Heike".
Gionsh˘ja no kane no koe, Shogy˘muj˘ no hibiki ari. Saras˘ju no hana no iro, J˘shahissui no kotowari wo arawasu. Ogoreru mono mo hisashikarazu, tada haru no yoru no yume no gotoshi. Takeki mono mo tsuwi ni wa horobin(u), hitoeni kaze no mae no chiri ni onaji.
The sound of the Gion Sh˘ja bells echoes the impermanence of all things; the color of the sÔla flowers reveals the truth that the prosperous must decline. The proud do not endure, they are like a dream on a spring night; the mighty fall at last, they are as dust before the wind.
The key parts of the story are printed on the fabric.
