How to dress an obi
Bunko-musubi for Yukata is the basic technique of wearing a Hanhaba-obi. Let's start with Bunko-musubi.
Since you do not need other accessories for Bunko-musubi, you can tie an obi casually.
Bunko-musubi can be worn from children to adults at any age.
Also, you can use it on not only Yukata but other casual kimonos such as a wool kimono etc.
