Kamiko (paper kimono)

【紙衣】

【KAMIKO】

 
  • Kamiko, beatified as a type of costume, in “Komochi Yamanba”. Nakamura Shikan 7th as Yaegiri. January, 2000 at the National Theatre. (Y_E0100218000214)
It is a type of clothes made with the Japanese paper put together, and originally a shabby attire worn by Buddhist priests. In Kabuki, it is used to express the appearance of a ruined person as in “Yatsushi”, but somewhat beautified in such a way as embroidering a fragment of a love letter in gold and silver on a black cloth, which says “Yearning for thee”. You can see this type of costume worn by such characters as Fujiya Izaemon in “Kuruwa Bunsyo” and Yaegiri in “Komochi Yamanba”.
