costumes of this era are deduced from the descriptions of Kojiki and
Nihonshoki, and examination of clay figures found in remains. This woman
wears a jacket with the right side under the left over Mo with stripes.
The jacket is tied up with the top and bottom strings. She also wears a
wide Tasuki (sash) with triangle patterns and paints her face with red
clay which creates peculiar impression. The Tasuki, a trace of the older
civilization, makes us imagine that the woman was a shaman serving God.
A sash called Myoe has been handed down generation to generation and it
is now used in religious rituals at the Grand Shrines of Ise.
