Bless This Comfy Room Wear

Shinto Fashion

For those looking for more traditional room wear, look no further than the Yuru Miko. This room wear draws heavy inspiration from the clothing worn by Shinto shrine maidens, called miko.

While official miko clothing consists of a robe and billowing pants, the Yuru Miko is actually a one-piece garment. Made from a sweatshirt-like cotton/polyester/polyurethane blend, it also has an adjustable elastic waist to provide a comfortable, relaxing fit.

The single-piece design also means that the wearer is in no danger of exposing herself, even if the purely decorative sash-style ribbon should happen to come undone.

The product officially goes on sale at the end of January 2017. However, Village Vanguard is already taking pre-orders, perhaps looking to capitalize on the residual effects of people in Japan having just made their customary visit to a shrine at New Year’s, and perhaps noticing the miko in their eye-catching outfits. The Yuru Miko is priced at ¥9,720 (US$84) and can be ordered here.
