Over many years I have gathered much information about wafuku (traditional Japanese clothing), as I studied the subject and grew my wafuku collection. I have put a selection of it together here in these 15 pages to provide you with some information about wafuku and Japanese textiles, along with a list of the Japanese eras. I hope you find it interesting and useful - just click the links above to browse the Info pages. That list of links is also available on each of those information pages.

I also have a separate Glossary page, where you can find the meanings of many Japanese words and phrases that you may come across in relation to wafuku.
