A message from actress Tomoko Yamaguchi below:
There special significance in the Japanese wedding dress found also in the inner white kimono of the bridegroom.
This significance of the inner white kimono is passed down from mother to baby as the baby will wear the white Ubugi..
The smooth, white silk protects the child from harm.
The special back sewing called Senui, further protects the child from evil.
The traditional practice called Sedetoshi is when the baby to puts her/his arms through the kimono, and the ubugi is worn for the first visitation to the shrine for praying for health and strength. This practice is from the Samurai period of the Heian era, in which the parents bring the baby when she/he becomes 20 days old, and visits aquaintances who live in a lucky direction. Another practice called “Osute ( thrown away):, or Hiroi (Pickup), means pretending the baby is not their own child in order to mislead evil.

A long time ago, there were very rare cases in which the baby would grow very healthy and live long into old ages. Therefore, the family would make every effort to ward off evil through this practice and insure a long life for the child.
With each thread, the parents pray for a healthy, long life and open the doors for the future.

Letter from the customer:

It was always my dream since a young age to see my baby wearing this beautiful. Today, my dream came true. My baby looked like a shining, brilliant angel in this traditional white Ubugi. Words cannot describe my happiness during that moment.
Thanks to Shinwa san, I would like to share this memorable moment and feeling with other parents as well. It is with much appreciation to Professor Uchida that I could enjoy this day with my child wearing the precious Ubugi. I am most grateful for this memory.( kanagawa Prefectur)
