Why are kimono sleeves slit in old japan?

i am american, so i dont know if it is just "old japan" or if it is so in japan today.
In many animes where traditional japanese clothing is worn (kimono, haori, etc) the sleeves are often cut at the shoulder or upper arm. it reveals the garment underneath.

does anyone know the meaning behind this?

It's just "anime" matter. Don't confuse anime with reality first of all.

But anyway, those clothes are coming from clothes worn in Heian period of Japan, like 10th century. Very old.

Those are "exercise wears". The sleeves are cut so that the person can move smoothly.
