Walking

In the Edo period people did not swing their arms back and forth like we do. This was, supposedly, because too much arm swinging made it difficult to keep your kimono proper and straight.

This continues on into New Edo, where Western clothing has been forbidden and kimonos remain the most common everyday fashion.
