Felines are animals that don't like their peers very much and prefer to be left alone. They also don't like to be disturbed and don't hesitate to show their fangs if necessary. This Japanese Tiger Kimono is for those who recognize themselves in this animal and appreciate the beautiful clothes of Japan.
The tiger, 虎 (tora) in Japanese, is a popular animal in Japan. Centuries ago, Japan imported tiger fur products from China, which only nobles were allowed to wear. Nowadays, the tiger has become popular and can be found in Japanese male names such as Akitora (秋虎 "autumn tiger"), thus having a strong image of virility, power, strength.
