Q : The yukata and obi had laundering instructions attached. But I cannot read kanji, so I cannot translate. Can you please tell me what the instructions say? My wife wants to take care of them properly. Thank you.

8/7/2001 ゆかたに合った帯を代わりに選んでほしいのですが。
Q : Thank you for the response. I looked at the Ukata site. I would like to buy y-45 with o-6. I would also like y-47. I'm having trouble deciding which obi to choose. It is between o-2 and o-11. My dilemma is whether there is more yellow or green in the leaves. Can you help me decide? Thank you.

A : I have y-47 in stock, but o-2 and o-11 are not in stock. I recommend o-21 or o-24, o-14 to y-47.
Please look at the page.

8/1/2001 サイズについてのお問合せ
Q : I am sorry to bother you again, but i wanted to be sure that you meant the yukata have no size. I am with a dance group and am in desperate need of nice yukata and obi for practice. I have been looking for places that are reasonable in price and large enough to fit. My next question is if they have no size what is the largest size they will fit? I am small on top and I have no worries about the top portion, but I am concerned about the measurement through the hips. How big is the width of the garment in the hip area? I would be very grateful if you could help me.

A :

Q : I would like to know if there are instructions about how to wear an obi correctly, in particularly, tying it. If there are pictures to show how it is tied, that would be great. Is there a rule of how long the yukata should be? I'm about 154 cm tall. Again, thank you.

A : ゆかたを着る期間は、はっきりと決まっていません。日本では6月初め頃から8月末頃が適当だと思います。日本は北から南まで長い国なので、南の方は9月頃まで着ているかもしれません。
