(n) Hair ornament


Kanzashi are hair ornaments. They can vary from very simple combs or "hair sticks" worn with yukata up to the multiple formal kanzashi worn by maiko. Wearing more than one kanzashi is generally reserved for children and young women, most mature women will limit themselves to a single kanzashi worn at a time.
