This listing is for a vintage happi coat - typically worn for parades or festivals, and usually decorated with auspicious designs or kanji that refer to an event sponsor, community organization, or even the town government.

The background is a medium blue with a design in red and white. "Best" is written in English as well as in Japanese, and it refers to the name of a store.

Some of the other kanji can be translated as: Thank you for your support, Successful business, Roaring business, Many people, BEST electrics, and Big Sale.

Watch the video below on the Gion Matsuri - a summer festival in Kyoto that features huge parade floats pulled by (mostly) men in happi coats! The coats are also worn by observers along the very crowded sidewalks!
