"Under the Sea" Woman's Michiyuki

We've never seen anything like this color combination. A light turquoise background with darker turquoise around the edges of the flowers; and the golden mustard color of those blossoms is a beautiful, though unusual choice.

Yes, those seem to be golden plum blossoms surrounded by sprigs of small white flowers, but the composition and patterning looks to us like a coral reef in tropical waters.

Great lining featuring ningyo - "Imperial Dolls".

Square neck line, inner ties to keep the hemline straight, and a hidden pocket on the right front panel (see green feathered tuft tucked in the pocket in one of the photos.)

Michiyuki are a narrow garment, fastened with snaps that will open if the fit is too tight. (The measurement we give is the jacket snapped closed, so your hips and waist measurement should be several inches smaller than the hips/waist measurement we give.) If you like this michiyuki but need more room, we can convert this to our Japanique Jacket style for $15 more. Just select the option above when ordering. Allow for an extra two days before we can ship. See the video below for a description on the different styles of kimono jackets, and click here to see our other Japanique Jackets


Shibori is "Japanese tie-dye", where an artisan stitches along a stenciled image on the fabric, pulling the threads tightly to create a resist. The fabric is then dyed and when the threads are released, the pattern is revealed. There are dozens of shibori techniques, with the most common these days called kaneko (referring to the spots on a fawn), where an often elaborate pattern is created by hundreds of tiny dots. Kyoto is famous for this kaneko style. Watch the video below to learn more.


Michiyuki were worn over the kimono (which showed at the neck) on chilly days. Michi means "street" and yuki refers to "going out".
