Everybody thinks that 2/14 is a St.Valentine's day!
Hey guys, did you get chocolate today? If not, you don't have to care about that!
Because 2/14 is not only the St.Valentine's dat but also a day of Fundoshi underwear!!

Fundoshi underwear is Japanese traditional underwear. Unlike western underwear, Fundoshi underwear is basically a combination of a 180cm-long piece of cloth and rope.

Let me introduce about Fundoshi citing from "Japan Fundoshi Association" website.
Ever heard of a traditional Japanese underwear, “Fundoshi”?
We, the Japanese Fundoshi Association aim to spread the long history and cultures of Fundoshi
to generate better understandings and interests towards Fundoshi for people.
‘Fundoshi’ is Japan’s Original ‘costume’ and ‘underwear’.
and more than anything, we want to let the entire world know that Fundoshi is considered
‘healthy’ to wear to sleep.
WHAT IS FUNDOSHI

Until recent years, all men and women in Japan wore Fundoshi.
All mens from Japanese woodblock prints, carpenter, the fish-shop, craftsman and traders were
all seen wearing a Fundoshi. It was actually considered as men’s work clothes. Even today, there
are a lot of Japanese people wearing ‘Fundoshi’ as a fashionable-relax-wear.
Fundoshi is comfortable, and a very unique Japanese culture.
Why not purchase as a souvenirs during your stay in Japan.
WHY FUNDOSHI IS GOOD FOR THE HEALTH

How come Fundoshi is considered good for the health when wearing to sleep?
By putting an end to your tight underwear, it forms cold temperature to the body which cause the
body to produce heat. In result, it allows a smoother blood circulation and healthier body
function.
Fundoshi has been considered to be a obsolete style of underwear.
Usually, Fundoshi is not considered to be a convenient underwear because Fundoshi takes time to wear and it has a risk to come off all of a sudden.
Here is the tutorial of how to wear Fundoshi underwear.

Japanese Fundoshi Association decided to call 2/14 as a day of Fundoshi because 2 (2 Sounds "Fu") / 14 (10 sounds Tou<Dou>. 4 sounds Shi).
Fu dou shi → Fundoshi.

Celebrating a day of Fundoshi, I would like to introduce some nice sample photos of real Fundoshi wearers.

Let's check out the beauty of Fundoshi
