- Description: Originally, yukata were worn by the higher social classes while bathing; however, as the years progressed, it became common for ordinary people to wear them after bathing and around the house during summertime. Yukata were soon worn outdoors for summer outings and cool evenings. Currently, most Japanese people wear Western-style clothing, so the yukata are worn mainly for special events, such as festivals.
