As the layering of kimonos became popular, the Japanese began to pay more attention to how to wear different colored kimonos, and their sensitivity to color increased. In general, color combinations were used to represent the colors of the season and the class of the political party we belong to. It was around this time that the traditional Japanese color combinations we know today developed.
Kimonos became more valuable and parents began to hand them down to their children as family heirlooms. After that, Japan was strongly influenced by foreign culture. The government encouraged people to adopt Western clothes and customs. Government officials and military personnel were required by law to wear Western clothing for official business. Civilians were required to wear a garment with a family crest when wearing a kimono on formal occasions. Nowadays, the kimono is only worn for special events such as weddings, funerals, tea ceremonies and summer festivals, and is rarely worn in daily life.
