Have you ever seen or worn a kanzashi hairpin? These floral decorative hair accessories are typically worn by women along with their kimono during special events like coming of age ceremonies, visits to shrines during the New Year, or festivals throughout the year.
They can be extremely intricate and almost always pair perfectly with an equally gorgeous kimono. Perhaps the next time you get a chance to don a kimono, you’ll give one a try?
Hatsune Miku’s kanzashi boasts not only a few different types of flowers but also a prayer tablet for wealth as part of her multicolored masterpiece of an outfit.
Which drawing do you think is the crown jewel of them all?
