Geta

Geta are Japanese traditional footwear. They have a sandal-like shape and consist of wooden sole and fabric thongs to hold the toes. In many cases, they have so-called "tooth" on the back of their soles to elevate the feet.

Japanese people often love to wear geta when wearing kimono (refer to #007) or yukata (refer to #042) and enjoy the sound of their striking the hard ground. Tengu (refer to #236) drawn by Japanese painters are usually wearing geta with very tall tooth.
