Jinbei Boy – Dinosaur Print

Posted in Japanese Traditions, People by tokyobling on July 2, 2012

You know it’s summer in Japan when the guys wearing the jinbei starts showing up. The other night I had a long discussion at a bar with a Japanese couple on where and when it is sociably acceptable to wear a jinbei. A jinbei is a two piece easy lounge version of the yukata which in itself is an even more causal version of the kimono. The discussion, although very informative, sadly never touched on the subject of patterns. I think a dinosaur patterned jinbei would be socially acceptable just about anywhere. This little boy at a festival last year really pulled it off!

    Oh my, he is just too perfect and cute (truly he’d look adorable in anything, don’t you think?). When I see tiny folks, it makes me want one. But then I snap out of it thinking of diapers and such. Gosh, and you know within a year they grow so quickly, he’s a different little person by now.

      I agree with you… the realist in me is why I am still happy to be watching kids from a distance rather than having my own… (^-^;)

        I think kids are a wonderful but substantial responsibility. I’m afraid of breaking them.
