How heavy are the twelve-layered kimono garments? Are they made of a lighter material so they are easier to wear? Or are they as heavy as they look?

These twelve layered kimono garments are quite heavy and Princess Sayako walked very slowly when she wore them on Nov. 12.

Princess to wed in time of change for Japan's royals
TOKYO (AFP) - The Japanese emperor's only daughter will marry a commoner Tuesday in an eagerly anticipated wedding that comes amid growing change for the world's oldest monarchy.....
http://au.news.yahoo.com/051113/19/wrto.html

No guest leaves empty-handed, but special day for princess takes its toll
It's easy to pick a wedding guest in Japan because they are the ones taking home the gifts. Tucked under their arms as they leave reception halls are cutlery, crockery, crystal: the stuff of weddings everywhere....
http://www.smh.com.au/news/world/no-...?oneclick=true

Wedding guests bank on lucky gifts
http://www.theage.com.au/news/world/...?oneclick=true

Princess 'Never Mind' turns her back on royal privilege to wed a commoner
The Emperor and Empress of Japan have ceremonially waved goodbye to their only daughter, who has chosen to renounce her title for love.....
http://news.independent.co.uk/world/...icle326871.ece

Japanese Princess marries late
JAPANESE Princess Sayako, the emperor's only daughter, gets married next Tuesday at 36, an age once considered impossibly late but now the norm in a country struggling with a falling birth rate.
Princess Sayako, a part-time bird researcher, is the first woman in the modern history of the world's oldest royal line to marry in her 30s, reflecting changes in Japanese women's lifestyles........
http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au...E23109,00.html

Princess bids fond farewell to palace
Princess Sayako, who will wed Tuesday and in the process become a commoner, felt "a quiet pang of loneliness" as she formally thanked her parents, Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko, during the "Choken-no-gi" farewell ceremony Saturday at the Imperial Palace......

Read from the newspaper that it is about 10kg. Both Masako and Kiko also wore it for their wedding although in different colour. And the front portion from knee to feet (black in colour) is actually long wide pant that wrap the feet.
