Insect Cage Obi 1930s (by Blue Ruin1)
A maiko (apprentice geisha) gazing out over the Kamo River in Kyoto from a yuka (summer balcony) and displaying her lovely darari-no-obi (dangling sash) decorated with mushi-kago (insect cages).
The weather is still hot during early autumn (8th August – 7th September), and sheer unlined kimonos continue to be worn until Kiku-no-sekku (Chrysanthemum Day) on 9th September. However, the colours and motifs of these summer garments are chosen to give a sense of the coming fall. Mushi-kago (insect cage) is one of the classic Japanese motifs of autumn.
