Edo period uchikake (formal long outer kimono-robe worn open over the rest of the robes.)    This one has "matsu" (pines), "kicho" (Heian screens) and "tsuru" (crane birds), among other things.    The bottom hem is padded, as it always is on uchikake- this is so that the fabric doesn't damage as it drags behind the wearer (uchikake are long and are worn loose to trail behind the wearer.)
