Item Description

Take home a pair of these handmade Geta black sandals, traditional Japanese footwear often worn with ceremonial clothing or cultural outfits.

According to Japanese culture, Geta are raised wooden clogs that are worn with the informal yukata. You will most likely hear them before you see them as they make a distinctive wood clacking noise as the wearer walks. This is sometimes mentioned as one of the sounds that the older Japanese population miss hearing most in modern life.

Donated by Renee Kimura. Handmade by Stanley Yasuda for a performance of a local community play.
