The old Kaga province in what is now Ishikawa Prefecture has been perfecting its fabric dyeing technique for 500 years and even today, the words "Kaga yuzen" mean spectacular combinations of purple, crimson, ochre, indigo, and dark green in various nature-theme designs for very high-quality kimono. Do you really need to know all that? Well, you do to appreciate even better the Pikachu Kaga Yuzen Kimono Plush Toy, one of the latest and most original additions to the official Pokemon merchandise catalog!
Yes, the gag is here you get Pikachu wearing a kimono, perhaps one of the latest things you would expect. But this isn't just a joke: the technique used for the kimono of this 22 x 15 x 9.5 cm (8.7 x 5.9 x 3.7") plush toy is indeed the same one used in the traditional kimono dyeing method of Kaga, and the patterns on it have been especially made for the Pokemon Center in the city of Kanazawa, the capital of Ishikawa Prefecture!
