Tabi

Tabi are Japanese traditional socks. In many cases, Japanese people have tabi on when they are wearing kimono (refer to #007) and footwear like geta (refer to #237) or zori (refer to #238).

Jika-tabi is one type of tabi, which can substitute for other footwear. Outdoor workers such as carpenters and farmers often love to wear jika-tabi because they have lighter weight and higher mobility than others.
