The kimono adopts the traditional techniques of mize weaving in Yamagata Prefecture and Jingyou Zen in Kyoto Prefecture. It is handmade and dyed by kimono creators and craftsmen from 18 prefectures. The production cost of each piece is 2 million yen (about 130000 yuan), and the total amount is about 400 million yen, which is raised by donation and so on.
