kimono was one of the marriage tools of a family of the daimyo of the
northern domain in the middle stage of Edo era;
used as bedding item. There
are two series in bedding of those days: the rectangular "futon"
bed and the "yogi (=nightclothes) which has "eri-sode (=collar
sleeves)" sleeves. The
name of the"yogi" began to be used from the Momoyama era. It
was used for the Saikaku's "Koshoku-ichidai-otoko (=the sensual
single generation man)" in the Edo era. Like
the "joh-i (=everyday clothes)", the "yagi" of Japan
is made into large size, and is written to be half the 1 body to "the
Wakan Sansai Zue (=Japan/China Age-of-three Paintings" ) .
The night arrival of Japan is written to be half the 1 body by large
like a everyday wear. It
is completely the same as that of the size currently described at "Morisada-mankoh",
a drawing book. It
is graceful to until this much, and the perfect night arrival of
preservation does not have an example in others; it is very rare.
