I bought this beautiful silk kimono in Japan while I was living there for 3 years. According to an Etsy expert, it's a man's nagajuban (under kimono garment). It has a gorgeous hand-painted scene of a Japanese woman, perhaps a geisha or courtesan, looking out to sea. It reminds me of Butterfly looking for her gaijin Pinkerton to return in the opera Madame Butterfly. This kimono has beautiful cranes. The scene extends out on the sleeves on the back. This scene is outstandingly beautiful!

It measures 50" (127cm) across the sleeves at the back and 52" (132cm) long at the back from the top of the collar. My model is about 5'4" and it hits her around the ankles. You could shorten it more if you'd like it as a jacket. It is lined in a thin beige silk. It needs a bit of easy mending on one open seam in the lining and on one side of the black strip in the front. Otherwise it's in very good vintage condition. IF I remember correctly, the black around the color is meant to protect the kimono before using and can be removed.

This has a great dressy look with black pants and top or a long black dress. You could also wear it as a robe at home. It would fit most sizes (8-16) as it doesn't fasten. You could hang this on your wall with the back showing or you could also cut the fabric and frame the beautiful picture.
