"Hawk at Sea" Boy's 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.

A rich, dark blue along the top and hem.

A large gray hawk flies over crashing waves and rock outcroppings with Mt Fuji in the background.

Artist's signature at the bottom right side of the back.

Five crossed feather family crests. Small and light blemish on the front, see photo.
