Chōzukake (頂頭懸)

A cord put on a ori-eboshi folding cap and tied under the chin. Reddish cord of gold brocade is often used. Bound with a string to the cap, its original purpose was to stabilize the cap, but on the stage it has a decorative meaning, dignifying the character in a public place. The term has a variant spelling in Chinese characters, but the pronunciation remains the same.
