What's this Japanese object?

I haven't posted a photo like this for a long time. Can you guess what this white Japanese household item is used for? The ordinary-sized coat hanger is included for size comparison. (If you live, or have lived in Japan, let's wait and see what guesses other people come up with.)

Obviously it is a hanger for a sumo wrestler's underpants.

Hmmm, ah no. Not as far as I'm aware. We were using them for hanging towels, but I'm guessing that kimono are also hung on them.
