What Do I Need To Wear A YUKATA?

Must Have (Women)
* Yukata
* Obi
* 2 Koshi-Himo
* Geta
These 3 items above are what you will NEED to wear a Yukata. People with an advanced skill only use 1 Koshi-Himo. Koshi-Himo is used to adjust and fix the length of Yukata. Obi will be placed around the waist to hide the adjustment area and become a great accent to a Yukata.
Some Options you can use are...
* Hadajuban (underwear)
