Japanese Wedding Couple
Today, kimonos are most often worn by women, and on special occasions. Traditionally, unmarried women wore a style of kimono called "furisode", which have floor-length sleeves, on special occasions. A few older women and even fewer men still wear the kimono on a daily basis. Men wear the kimono most often at weddings, tea ceremonies, and other very special or very formal occasions. Professional sumo wrestlers are often seen in the kimono because they are required to wear traditional Japanese dress whenever appearing in public. They commonly wear the kind of casual Japanese attire that is referred to as "yukata", which is of plain unlined cotton.
