"Shojo" 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.

The central image on the back is a delicately painted "Sho-Jo" in an elaborately patterned costume. Sho-jo is a famous noh theater character.

Five family crests and gold couching outlining some of the edges.

There's a small spot on the front of one sleeve, see photo.
