Why We Love It
Amidst the the weeping cherry trees stands the pagoda of a temple. Leaning back against the mountains the pagoda looks across the landscape. On this obi belt the designs are hand painted against the gorgeous silver sky.
Nagoya obi, so-called as they were popularised in the city in the 1920s, can be recognised by the folded end, making it easier to tie the traditional taiko musubi knot.
