You get a beautiful “emon” neck line

Do you have an experience that you can’t make the collar shape you like? It will happen especially when you are putting on and wearing “juban” without “emon-nuki”, “juban” with strings or slippery polyester “juban”. This is also the way for those who have rich breasts, square shoulders or a short neck. Make the collar almost flat and leave some space around the neck to make the neckline look neat.

How to put on a separate “juban” Maikichi likes

When I was a kimono beginner, I used to use undergarments and accessories provided by a kimono school. The more I got used to wearing kimono, the more I wanted to try other “juban” and accessories to be suitable for my lifestyle. There are two types of “juban”, long one and separate one. The most favorite of all the things I have tried is a separate “nagajuban”, which has two parts. In Japanese it is called “nibushiki naga-juban.”  I wear this “juban” pretty frequently. I’d like to tell you how useful it is. Please refer to this as one of your choices.
