The Japanese can’t stop inventing other functions for things, even with a piece of cloth.
The name “Hanayome Noren,” literally means “bride curtain”. It comes from an old custom of the former Kaga Clan based in Kaga, Noto and Ecchu in which families, upon giving away the bride during weddings, would hand the bride a vividly-colorful “noren,” or curtain, as an expression of their wishes for the happiness of the daughter they so lovingly raised. During the wedding ceremony, the bride passes through the ornate curtain, which is often decorated with the family’s crest. The ritual is believed to confer blessings on the newlyweds.
By hanging curtains at the entrance, the thin cloth separates the inside from the outside of the room and it also elegantly covers the door, which enhances curiosity and expectation, similar to wrapping paper.
