Often only worn at festivals, a Happi coat is a Japanese short sleeved jacket that has a crest printed on the back, representing the family or organisation you belong to. This is just a collage of the different coloured ones I saw at the Kamakura Matsuri (next blog post!)
My favourite one is the top left one, of the guy wearing the blue and white happi. So daring and so stylish.
I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw this man posing by the lights. His outfit was shorter than the dress I was wearing that day :O
On a side note, I apologise for my lack of blog posts – I’ve had no wifi since last Friday and I’ve been using other people’s wifi in the meantime. My new router should be arriving this afternoon so I should be back in action soon!
Thanks for reading!
