Ainu Print Happi Coats
About the Products
These Happi Coats - traditionally worn during summer festivals in Japan - are printed with original Ainu designs on 100% cotton fabric.
The Ainu are Hokkaido's indigenous people, and their iconic geometric designs are both beautiful and believed to ward off evil spirits. Protect yourself and your loved ones in style with these uniquely Hokkaido cultural happi.
Available in white (L size) or blue (XL); each with a unique design. Designed & printed right here in Hokkaido. The happi coats are typically worn above other layers of clothing.
