| NAGAJUBAN|| It
is a long undergarment for Kimono. It is worn over the "Hadajuban" and
underneath the "Kimono". The Purpose of wearing Nagajuban is to avoid
the Kimono getting dirty and stained from the swet etc... You saw
the "Haneri" on to the "Nagajuban" collar for this reason.|
|HANERI|| Haneri is a collar that is sawn on to the "Nagajuban" to avoid the Kimono collar to get dirty. Haneri can be seen as a layer of Kimono collar so it also gives a elegant look to Kimono.|

= waist. Himo=rope. Koshihimo is a long thin cloth tied around the
waist to hold "Juban" and "Kimono". Normally, 2 or 3 Koshihimos are
used to wear Kimono however many Kimono masters only use 1.|
|DATEJIME (MAGIC BELT)|| Datejime
is a flat wide cloth which is tied below the bust to stablize the area.
One for "Nagajuban" and one for "Kimono" is normally used.|
If the datejime has a velcro closer, it is also celled magic belt. We recommend this magic belt because it is easy to use and less knot around the waist.
