"Kabuto" Boy's Miyamairi Kimono

This is a vintage Japanese boy's formal kimono, called a miyamairi, and is a ceremonial garment draped over an infant boy for his first visit to the shrine with his parents and grandparents to thank the gods for safe delivery of the child. Miyamairi typically have dark bands at top and hem with a light band across the middle, and in that middle space is a painted design that reaches across the back and sleeves. See below for a cute video featuring kids wearing traditional kimono.

This kimono features a large kabuto - samurai helmet - festively colored and topped with a fierce dragon head. There's a crane as well as arrow fletching and other auspicious imagery on the sleeves.

Five family crests confirm this is a very formal kimono.
