Yukata and Obi

Kyoto yoiyama浴衣と帯

On her way to Kyoto's mid-summer festival, Yoiyama, this young woman clutched a brightly colored handbag in her lap as she rode the subway.

The splash of color of her yukata (cotton robe), obi (belt), and the bag create a wonderful palette.

The sleeves of the yukata are white, with a floral pattern.

The obi is a bold yellow, again with flowers.

The bag itself is orange and yellow, and it appears to have origami figures on it.
