A Woman's Kimono - Yukata

In the summer,many women wear a yukata, a light-weight cotton kimono, to attend festivals. Most yukata are navy blue and white, but girls and young women sometimes wear brightly colored, floral pattered yukata. Some people wear them around the house. Japanese inns and hot spring resorts often provide yukata for guests to wear in their rooms.
