Why We Love It
The Kurume hanten is the highest quality traditional kimono-style padded jacket for contemporary living.
Kurume City in Kyushu specializes in Kurume Kasuri – cotton-weaving textiles originating in the 18th century. It is renowned for its intricate technique and premium quality of raw cotton.
This hanten jacket is carefully handmade stitch by stitch and filled with Kurume cotton padding, which will not slip. This thick natural padding not only retains heat well, but will also puff back up to its original volume with a little warmth from the sun. The lining is also cotton to ensure you will be both warm and comfortable.
The elegant patterns woven into the 100% cotton fabric highlight Kurume’s textile heritage, but the design is tailored to modern life. It is longer and more spacious than a traditional hanten jacket, and comes with two large pockets. Try a fashionable look with a turtle neck sweater and knee-high boots!

I have wanted a hanten for so long to keep me snug through a Melbourne winter, but was worried about purchasing one internationally online and unable to get to Japan myself. However, I took a leap of faith and am now the proud owner of an absolutely beautiful hanten - exceptional quality and aesthetic, just as hoped and anticipated. The service from Japan Objects staff was also exceptional - courteous, reassuring and very much appreciated. I just wish this particular hanten also came in a slightly larger size (100cm chest) for women.
Received this hanten surprisingly fast and I'm super happy with it! Had it for a couple weeks now and I want to wear it all the time, it keeps you very warm and is so comfortable, it's like wearing an extra cushy housecoat or a comforter!
Exactly what I expected. Fit was perfect. It’s super warm, soft, and comfortable.
