Hikinuki obi has a design that is 'upside-down' near the tare end (the wide end used to make the otaiko portion) and is meant to be tied in a specific manner so that the design ends up 'right side up' on the otaiko. The style of obi musubi can also be tied when the reverse side of the obi is a contrasting colour.


  • upsidedown topsy-tervy!
  • more often than not black base with iridescent threads, however, can be other coloured base
