Description
 
"Hawk on the Bridge" 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.

Gorgeous, smooth, silk - luxurious to the touch. Lovely blue-gray border at the top and black at the hem. Five ivy family crests pop out against the lighter blue background.

Around the middle is a fantastic scene of a large, blue-feathered hawk guarding a bridge or the travelers crossing it. Mountains in the background along with pine and other traditional imagery.
