The kimono is a traditional Japanese garment worn by men, women and children.  Kimono are T shaped, straight-lined robes worn so that the hem falls to the ankle, with attached collars and long, wide sleeves.  Kimonos are wrapped around the body, always with the left side over the right side and secured by a sash called an obi, which is tied at the back.  Kimono are generally worn with traditional footwear, especially zori or geta, and split-toe socks or tabi.
