Juni Hitoe refers to the Japanese noblewoman's full court costume meaning "twelve layers" or "twelve clothes". The Juni Hitoe has been an enduring symbol of tradition and wealth in Ja pan.However, regardless how many layers were worn, their arrangement was most important. The layered color pattern reflected many things including seasons, directions, virtues, and the elements of the earth as they related to the spirits of nature.

The more accurate name for the Juni Hitoe is Karaginu Mo, in reference to the types of clothing worn. Derived from Chinese court garments, the Karaginu is a jacket and the Mo is a stylized apron worn only by the high nobles. Although both terms are correct, Juni Hitoe is more commonly used.

Juni Hitoe is also known as Juni-Hito or Juni-Hitoe
