Yukatas (浴衣) are a casual version of the kimono worn throughout the hot months. They are usually made from cotton or a synthetic fabric, wrapped around the body and secured with a sash (obi). Since yukatas are much lighter and cooler than a kimono and have become super popular to wear at a summer festival.
