About Haori, ala Kulta Hannu:
A “haori” is a kimono coat / jacket. There are several kinds but it is the one that ties closed at the front. Another, called the “michiyuki,” crosses over the chest and snaps/buttons closed above the breast to cover very large obi. These are worn in the rain, to protect the silk of the kimono underneath.
