Informal, unlined kimono made of cotton

Yukata is an informal, unlined kimono made of cotton and originally worn at home. It is usually worn to the bath or in the summertime. The name "yukata" comes from the word "yu (bath)" and "katabira (under-clothing)." Today many people especially young people wear yukata at summer festivals, fireworks displays, and the Bon Festival Dance. Also, most Japanese style inns provide yukata as pajamas.
