"Tale of Genji" Fukuro Obi

This is a fukuro obi - wide for the entire length, plain on the backside and a patterned design only on the front. Usually, there is a one yard "blank" section on the front, as is common with contemporary fukuro obi, where some cost can be saved by leaving it blank where the first wrap layer of the belt portion occurs, since it doesn't show to the public.

This obi features imagery from the famous Tale of Genji. Soft pastels with a geometric lightning pattern on the backside. Beautifully done and like new - excellent condition!
