Short and slight, Kakita Umiko is clearly of the Crane. Her long white hair hangs loose, framing a delicate face and inquisitive bright blue eyes. A wide conical straw hat rests at a slight angle upon her head and a small, blue songbird sits atop the point, occasionally launching itself trilling into the air before settling back to its perch.
Kakita Umiko’s kimono is sky blue, decorated with a swirling pattern of cranes in flight with an exquisite daisho belted at her waist. She also carries a huge No-Dachi, perhaps six feet long, the scabbard strapped to her back behind her travelling pack. The back of her hat has a notch cut in it to allow the huge sword to sit, and be drawn, comfortably.
