Obidome (Obi Ornament), Wise Monkeys


Materials : Suigyu (Water Buffalo's horn)

Very popular motif of Japan. You can see the three monkeys at Youmeimon of Tokugawa Ieyasu's temple in Nikkou, Japan. The three wise monkeys, Mizaru (does not see evils), Iwazaru (does not say anything evils), Kikazaru (does not listen any evils). The --zaru means something-monkey, and this sounds same as "not" or "never".

What is Obidome? :
One of Kimono accessorries. Use the Obidome put through thin Obijime rope. Only for casual occasion. We can offer you "Obijime" for Obidome. (If you use Obidome, Obijime should be thinner than ordinal one, SANBU size.)
