Kimari Moyō (極リ模様)

Using the standard color and design in costumes and fans when performing Noh or kyōgen. One example often seen in performances of popular or special plays, for example with the maejite in Dojōji, is the wearing of a Karaori with the woven pattern of a cherry tree (in the Kanze school). The style of the fan is often also set in regular performances. The Kimari Moyō are not, however, set in stone, and the performers are often able to select the color or style of their costume and fan based on the play being performed.
