  • There are two public domain photos of junihitoe here, if you need to add more images: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Junihitoe.jpg -and- http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Itsutsuginu-Karaginu-Mo_for_female_attendants.JPG There's also an old artistic depiction (albeit a slightly inaccurate one- but most are!) here: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hyakuninisshu_057.jpg It is likewise public domain.
  • This article doesn't make a distinction between "karaginu mo" and "itsutsu-ginu-kouchiki" styles, and the list of constituent items comes close to hinting that all items are present in both forms, which is not true; is it possible to remedy this? For the less formal style of "itsutsu-ginu-kouchiki", a karaginu and mo would not be worn... There are also a few other (rare) subvarieties, such as the kazami: http://www.iz2.or.jp/english/fukusyoku/wayou/1.htm although I'm not sure that something so utterly specialised need be included in a general wiki page.
  • I think that it's important to have a section about the different colors of nagabakama, which don't really fit on the kasane page: dark-maroon were worn by unmarried women, while the iconic bright-red (miko-red!) nagabakama were worn by married women. Since it's the Heian equivalent of furisode- but even stricter- I think that it ought to be included, although I'm not sure where. :S If you need a citation for the hakama/marriage/colors custom, it occur's in Dalby's Kimono, among others.

I happened on this page by chance and just thought I'd leave a comment. -SG, 2012 May 25
