Dlaczego wiążemy gi/kimono lewą stroną na prawą:

  1. people wore the left side on top because the inside of the kimono became easily accessible with the right hand, a bit like a big pocket, allowing to dissimulate weapons (most likely a tanto, or short knife) or carry small fans (which were popular in high society).
  2. Do pogrzebu wiąże się kimono odwrotnie prawa na lewą.
  3. As far as I know the left side over right is for the living. Dead bodies get kimono tied right over left. Some sources include wikipedia and Japan Zone for example. So, unless you are an undead, there are no exceptions.
  4. Lewa jest od strony serca
