Uwagi

An Uwagi (上衣) is a kimono-like jacket worn in Japan. It is most familiar as the top half of a martial arts uniform.

The third element, the obi belt, ties closed the uwagi and holds up the zubon.

In some martial arts, the set is completed by a hakama which might be worn over or instead of the zubon.
