Here are two videos I found on Youtube, showing how to put on a yukata kimono and hanhaba obi. It is in two parts below. If you only want the hanhaba obi instructions, they are in Part 2.

In Japan they say, if you attend one kimono class per week, you will just about learn how to put on and wear a kimono in one year.

Part 1

Part 2 – including hanhaba obi tying instructions



    1. So glad it was helpful. It’s so much easier when shown, rather than just having it explained. I can’t take credit for the video, though; I just found them on Youtube and embeded links to them to here.
