[What do I need if I want to wear a yukata?]
In Japan, summer festivals and fireworks displays are held from July to August.
Yukata" is what people wear during these festivals.
In the past, Yukatas were worn as pajamas after bathing, but now, with the addition of a few colors and patterns, they are worn at nighttime festivals.

(6) Datejime (useful if available)
When you move, the collar around your chest inevitably flares out to the left or right.
The date-jime prevents this from happening.
It is fastened over the yukata.
(7) Maeita (useful if available)
When you bend over, the obi will get wrinkled.
The Maeita prevents this and allows the obi to be wrapped without wrinkles.
