I have a question-- I sometimes see women in ancient japanese paintings depicted with a little white ribbon-thing in their hair. What is that thing? What is it called?

   Heian Japan is my favorite era. In fact, it's the only era I seem to know best about the place.

I'm not sure if you'd like us to find some writing errors, as I found 2.

"A woman's her fashion ability.." --- you can remove "her"
"Powered white skin.." --- I think you meant "powdered"?

Anyways, thank you again for another informative piece :D

Up to 40 layers for jūnihitoe? My goodness, beauty must suffer indeed. I know it's silk, but still, those summers must have been hellish. Very informative, thanks! :) Also that tidbit about dyeing the hakama and kosode was enlightening

Thats true about the hair and they are so sexy that are super extremely uncuttable  and can be usefull as a tool or weapon.Soryy i just like anime women with super extreme uncuttable hair that touch the floor!Can you make a art that talk and show how their hair grow faster and many things about their hair?
