However, the number of parents for their children to wear skirts and blouses is also increasing. On the occasion of the maturation (Young people turning 20 years old), weddings, graduation ceremonies or in formal parties, it is often the women will wear Kimono. Those who study and work in traditional Japanese art world as dancers, those who serve in traditional Japanese restaurants often have to wear traditional costumes.
