Box-O-Kimono from Yamatoku!

I just received my bulk box of "10 vintage kimono" from Yamatoku today!

Just a quick overview since it will take me a while to photograph everything.

There are five nice komon kimono (including hitoe) and one kurotomosode that are in excellent, wearable condition! That alone makes it worth it. There are two obi in dubious shape, one might be wearable, and a formal-looking child's garment of some type that I'm not familiar with plus a cute yukata that is too short for me but looks wearable. More on this box of kimono soon!
