Kimono, 1850-1880. Museum no. T. 72-1957. This kimono has been embroidered with an extremely potent image of dragons, the most powerful of the mythical beasts, and Mt Fuji, the quintessential symbol of Japan. The striking red silk ground makes the image all the more dramatic.Yet this is an under-kimono (juban), so its design would not have been seen when worn. Instead it served to symbolically wrap the wearer with divine power and protection.

Kimono, Museum no. Silk crepe, resist-dyed with paste-resist dyeing (yuzen), stencilled imitation tie-dyeing (kata kanoko) and embroidery. The motifs on this kimono illustrate the tale of Urashima Taro.

Samurai Surcoat, Japan 18th C. Polychrome figures silk and peacock feathers.  By the time this example was made, in the 18th century, Japan was at peace and jinbaori no longer had to withstand the rigours of battle. Instead they were worn purely for ceremony and were designed to emphasise the power and status of the samurai. The design of jinbaori reflected the individual tastes of the warriors who wore them and they were often made of unusual or expensive materials.
