The unisex coats are meant to be worn over your clothes or as a shirt, tied at the wait with a belt (or a rope, if you’re going for the full traditional look). In the past Happi were worn by house servants and the crest of the family they served would be printed on the back. Firefighters also wore them, and they would also have their group name or logo printed on the back. These days you’re more likely to see them on drunk businessmen at corporate events, or on the backs of your neighbours at a local community festival in some sunny Tokyo park during the summertime.
