This listing is for a vintage hanten coat - typically worn for parades or festivals, and usually decorated with auspicious designs or kanji that refer to an event sponsor, community organization, or even the town government. They were also worn in shops by the merchant owner or workers.

The large "Y" on the back comes from the name of the company - Yokoi Woolen Company - which is listed on the front collar of the jacket. Even though it comes from a woolen mill, it is make of cotton!

Intricate geometric elements across the bottom half of the jacket, and a pretty blue cotton upper lining that has seen better days.
