Yeah, lots of photos. And sorry about the not great pictures, our lights are very orange and it washes out the color a little.

The obi... I think I see kiku, peony, and iris? But I'm really not sure on the rest.

I'm pretty sure on the kimono (Peonies, kiku on the water, bamboo leaves, and maple leaves,) I was just wondering - are the maple leaves turning? Or are they too weirdly colored for that? And it's a fall kimono, right?

The obi is a nagoya obi, and I *think* the kimono is a chu-furisode but I'm not 100%. The sleeve length is right but it's fairly simple; it was a gift so I don't have any of the seller's info on it.

Full kimono picture, if it helps. Sorry about the mess, I've been folding clothes XD
