Getting the Closets Ready for Winter

These are hung in the closet to protect wool clothes.

The one on top is an old one. In the orange rectangle, the word "owari" is written in white letters, hiragana. That means that it is "finished" or used. It needs to be replaced with a new one.

Sure wish I had known about these while I was in Japan before a matching full-length dress and sweater from home were eaten to bits.

Love your site and the information is also very useful for non-Japanese, of any age, living there.

Happy Holidays!
