  1. You are looking at a vintage UCHIKAKE Wedding Coat Kimono. It is silk with Cranes embroidered using metallic and satin threads. Uchikake are the outer layer of a traditional bridal kimono that don't get tied by the obi. They are quite long and are meant to trail along the ground slightly , the hem is padded to prevent wear. The ladies holding the edges show you some perspective of the size. The kimono is highly decorative with auspicious images such as in this one with Cranes. In Japan, Cranes are traditionally believed to live 1000 years. They are a symbol of longevity.
