Yamato Nadeshiko - TV Tropes -- Broadly speaking, then, a yamato nadeshiko is a "flower of Nipponese womanhood": a woman with attributes that were considered desirable in the (male-dominated) neo-Confucian Japan of the nineteenth century and beyond.

Ai Yori Aoshi, Aoi in a lovely kimono. I am very fond of this anime. Nothing magical, except that her conservative nature almost makes Aoi a girl out of time. (The first time we meet her she is standing befuddled befor an automated train gate in Tokyo.). The other magic is bound up in the Japanese sense of luck or fate.
