Also called “Kyouji”, a long belt like fabric sawn to the collar. Or the sawn place itself. When it became dirty or worn, you can take them off and wash it or replace it with new ones.

A slim and long fabric added to the edges of “Uwamae” and “Shitamae” to make wider space. Or the sawn place itself. For this fabric, it makes the area of the overlap between “Uwamae” and “Shitamae” wider, making it easier to wear.

Uwamae & Shitamae
“Uwamae” is where comes on top when two sides are placed together. “Shitamae” is where comes on bottom. Japanese traditional rules are always left body comes on top for both male and female. When right body comes on top, it became for the dead. When worn, if your right hand is easy to place inside, then you are wearing it correctly.
