What is Hanten?

Hanten (half-coat) is a type of Japanese clothing widely worn by the common people during the Edo period, primarily used as cold-weather clothing. This traditional Japanese garment is still popular today for its unique shape and functionality, both for work and as cold-weather clothing.

A characteristic feature of hanten is its half-length sleeves, leading to the name “hanten.” Unlike regular haori, hanten do not have turned collars, instead featuring black shusu or Kurohachijo style collars. They also lack the front tying strings. The sleeve style is either tubular or tapered, with a length up to the waist.

Hanten’s primary function is as workwear and cold-weather clothing. For cold weather, cotton-filled hanten are used, including types like “Nenneko Hanten” that can be worn while carrying a child and “Kamenoko Hanten” for children. When worn, they do not use chest strings and are worn without folding the collar.

Hanten hold a special place in contemporary Japanese culture due to their practicality and traditional charm.
