The Price Of Kimono In Japan, 1970-2015

What is really amazing to me when I look at this data is that in 1970 the average price was ¥66,566 ($609 at the current exchange rate), but in 1980 that had jumped to ¥208,054 ($1904). That is a huge increase and shows you how the bubble economy affected prices. Since 1980 the price has only increased moderately, to ¥288,547 ($2640) last year.
