What is Shigoki for? 2008/2/19 14:06
I have two Shigoki and I know how to use them, but I have no idea what they are properly used for.
I usually see them on children and occasionally geiko/geisha.
I have also seen them on mannequins, with old furisode sets.

It is used for 7 year old girls upon her Shichigosan ceremony, for brides and for some traditional performers. Does this answer your question?
