The Japanese Bridal Car

After the kimono dressing was finished, the bride and groom moved to the shrine via a special bridal car. But this bridal is very different than western limousines. There are three special features:
1. There is a Chinese character for happiness painted on the car
2. Besides the doors, the roof of the backseats also open to make room for the Japanese bride's kimono and hood
3. To help the bride, there are reins on the back of the front seats for her to balance herself with

Wearing a white shiromuku kimono makes it very difficult to move. The reason why is because your body is basically wrapped in a thick comforter. And if the bride wears the traditional wig and kimono hood, that's another 20cm added to her height. So these are the reasons why the Japanese bridal car was invented!
