Fisherman's Celebratory Robe (Maiwai)
This fisherman's ceremonial robe is adorned with written characters that mean "ten thousand" and "celebration." The motifs and vivid colors express the intended festive use of the garment. A crane, which symbolizes good luck, descends towards the horizon holding a banner with the celebration character; folding fans, which are also symbols of a prosperous and happy fortune, bear the name of a ship and the word tairyo, meaning great fish catch.
