By the early twentieth century, the focal point of stylish men’s clothing had turned inward, and the lining of a haori, a formal outer jacket worn over a kimono, often boasted eye-catching designs. On this example, Tokyo View of Nijubashi Bridge at Imperial Palace and Mount Fuji dominate the composition.

The Nijubashi bridge was built in 1614 by the shogun, Tokugawa Hidetada. He is the second Tokugawa shogun, who completed the consolidation of his family’s rule, eliminated Christianity from Japan, and took the first steps toward closing the country to all trade or other intercourse with foreign countries. The current Imperial Palace is located on the former site of Edo (known today as Tokyo) Castle, a large park area surrounded by moats and massive stone walls in the center of Tokyo. It is the residence of the Japanese Imperial family.

Dye-patterned and painted plain-weave silk. All hand-made-hand-woven in pure, high quality Japanese silk. Japanese haori have no openings under the armpit. Obi is not worn with haori jackets so it is not included. Our kimono haori is unisex, it can actually be worn or displayed either way.

Measurements (please do not double): Back (flat): 25 inches (64 cm). Sleeve length: 20 inches (51 cm). Length (shoulder to hem): 41 inches (104 cm).
