+...JaPaNeSe BriDe...+

In a traditional Shinto wedding, the bride wears the traditional white wedding kimono dress called shiro-muku.

The bride is wearing a white hat, named Tsunokakushi, which is traditionally worn to veil the bride's horns of jealousy, ego and selfishness. It also symbolized the bride's resolve to become a gentle and obedient wife.
