"Kintaro" Boy's Juban Underkimono

This is a vintage Japanese boy's kimono, probably from the 1950s or earlier. These little robes could have been sleepwear or worn under a kimono for a more formal event.

This very vintage kimono features a printed motif celebrating Kintaro, a mythical hero boy of superhuman strength and a special connection to animals. He is often depicted as plump, riding a large fish. Click here for the wikipedia discussion of Kintaro.

The design, including stylized waves and arrows, is repeated in wide horizontal bands.
