In 1899, Japanese artist, Suzuki Shonen was commissioned to create what would become a historic painting of a Cloud Dragon. The idea for this creature came from a priest in the Tenryu-ji Zen Temple in Kyoto, Japan. The name Tenryu-ji translates to "temple of the heavenly Dragon." Nearly a decade later in 1997, due to deterioration, a new rendition of this painting was commissioned to commemorate the 650th anniversary of the death of the Temple founder. This new version rests on the ceiling so it appears the dragon is looking at you wherever you enter the temple.
This yukata honors the historic painting. Living among the clouds against a navy blue background representing the sky, the gilded dragons, gold calligraphy and contrasting shades of blue create this distinctive Japanese design. This men's yukata is made of 100% cotton with a shrink resistant finish. Machine wash cold water for best results. This robe has contemporary straight sleeves and a matching belt is included.
