A yukata (浴衣) is a Japanese clothe, a casual summer kimono usually made of cotton. People wearing yukata are a common sight in Japan at Hanabi (fireworks) displays, bon- odori (their God's shrine festivals, and other summer events. Though their use is not limited to after-bath wear, yukata literally means bath(ing) clothes.

Traditionally yukata were mostly made of indigo cotton but today a wide variety of colors and designs are available. As with kimono, the general rule with yukata is that younger people wear brighter colors and bolder patterns than older people. A child might wear a multicolored print and a young woman, a floral print, while an older woman would confine herself to a traditional dark blue with geometric patterns. Since the late 1990s, yukata have experienced a revival.
