Wedding uchikake, kimono and accessories - called shiromuku - for traditional Shinto weddings in Japan. All is white - “white” can be dyed with any color, so shiromuku means that brides are ready to be dyed with color of groom. “White” has also been regarded as a sacred color for many years, so Japanese people have believed shiromuku to be suitable for the wedding ceremony held at sacred and religious places.
