The tradition of wearing kimono in Japan dates back to the 7th century and is considered something of an art form; the ornate robes consist of several layers and accessories that can take several hours to put on. Admire an exhibit of a dozen exquisite kimono, many handmade by a Japanese-American matriarch residing near Portland in the early 20th century.
