About 1920’s, Japan.  ”This photo was originally part of a set of images produced by the Megumi Yukata company as a means of marketing their garments, and the company name can be seen at the lower corner.  The woman modeling the yukata was likely a familiar celebrity as her name is included on the photo in highly stylized Japanese script.”  Text and image via oldjapanphoto on wordpress.
