A Japanese matsuri (festival) is never complete without people walking around in their Yukata.
A lot of people confuse this with our Kimono. But it's very different, as the Yukata is made of lighter material (usually cotton), has less layers, and we wear the Geta (traditional Japanese sandals) barefoot. Simply put, the Yukata is a summer version of the Kimono.
Festivals like this are pretty much the only time we have a chance to wear the Yukata. I didn't wear one this time but there were a lot of people, from little kids to adults, enjoying the Kagurazaka Festival in their Yukata!
What do you think? Would you like to try one on?
