Ancient Japanese fashion.
When I lived I ancient japan only rich people wore extravagant clothes made from the finest silks with many expertly cut layers to show all at once. They also carried decorative fans with birds and flowers on them. They were called nobles because they were the rich part of society.
Japanese took great pried in how they wrote and spoke. Within the nobles writing was very popular escpecially among women. They often wrote journals and diaries. They chose their words carefully and wrote in beautiful calligraphy. They often wrote in Chinese. One of the greatest writers of my time was lady murasaki shikibu.
A forgotten art
Ancient Japanese art consisted of long graceful strokes with little color. The popular forms of art was calligraphy paintings and architecture. Though some art made. Y nobles consisted of bright colors. There paintings also told stories. One of the greatest stories/paintings was the tale of genji. Other paintings show nature or court life.
