Ueno in Tokyo is the area which seems vulgar for ranging bars and brothels. The long-established store of Obijime, Domyo stands among them.



Obijime means a decorative cord used to hold a kimono sash in place. Usually, men don’t use. Don’t make fool of Obijime as just a string. On coordinate, finish is important. No matter how gorgeous kimono you wear, it becomes at once nonsense when the obijime does not suit.

On the other hand, the obijime cords will help you to enjoy kimonos. You must have had an accessory for making you look cute or splendid. Don’t find them troublesome and why not try to enjoy the variation?

The greatest point of Domyo’s cords is, before everything, the springiness. You can strongly pull and it seldom comes loose after buckling once. You must be satisfied with the usability although theirs are so expensive.

Why are their obijime so good? Their history tells us the reason. They have studied, investigated, and restored the old braids stored at Shosoin and long established Shinto shrines all over Japan since 1652. Studying the past, they have got the traditional technique.

Obijime are playing a foil, not the main character, in kimono style. However, it is an important partner of women in Japanese style, to have beauty and solid serviceability, to get closer to courtesy and religion on occasion, and to embody refined aesthetic sense. Domyo can give you the best one, we declare.
