Kimono with a design of 'kasumi'(mist) and 'yamahoko' (decorated floats), which is dyed in graceful colors.
Main parts of left front panel are embroidered.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Silk Hiyoku (additional layer) is attached.
It has 5 dye kamons.

Especially, discoloration of back bodice is very prominent. (G)
Also, patinas on the design of left front panel are noticeable. (D)
Discoloration of 'Douura' (upper lining) is hardly bothering, but Hiyoku is quite slightly discolored.
There are other flaws such as slight wear.
