There is another 'otaiko'(square bow) pattern in between 'otaiko' and 'taresaki'(end of wide part) which will be seen inside of 'otaiko' when you tie it. It is so called "Ura-Taiko" (wrong side taiko). It makes this obi very luxurious which can be seen just a little bit. It is the obi which is outstanding from regular 'otaiko' pattern obi.
