Why don't you try wearing kimono?

Kimono is making a comeback.

 Silk kimono is a long robe traditionally worn at ceremonial occasions; such as weddings and graduation, which can fit most body types even though it comes in only one size. Similarly, a cotton variation called "Yukata" is worn as summer wear at firework displays and festivals. In everyday life, Japanese people usually wear western clothes, because kimono is hard to put on and maintain. However, today as Japanese, especially the young, are becoming interested in traditional culture; such as tea ceremony and flower arrangement, the beauty and classicism of kimono are coming back. In addition, now new types of wash-and-wear polyester kimono and ready-tied sashes are appearing. These are much easier to handle and take care of.

"Asakusa-Shichihenge"

 "Asakusa-Shichihenge" is a popular kimono shop, located next to Asakusa-kannon temple. This shop specializes in kimono rentals and accessories. Patrons can stroll the historical streets of Asakusa and experience what life was like in olden times. I'm sure wearing kimono in Asakusa will be one of the highlights of your stay in Japan.

The base price one can expect to pay for a kimono is ¥3,500. However, group discounts apply for 2 or more people(¥2,500 each).

Accessories such as Japanese socks and a flower-shaped hair ornament are ¥300 and ¥100 respectively.

Happy cosplay!

Masako was our guide for 2 full and 2 half days while we had an amazing holiday in Tokyo and the surrounding area. We thoroughly enjoyed our tours, Masako was helpful with her knowledge but recognised when we needed to make itinerary changes due to the children's interest levels. For our family this made the tours totally effective and hugely enjoyable. Contact Masako, for me she helped tailor ...

“ Tokyo Highlights ”

ดีมาก
1 year ago Traveler: Kate -   Tour Guide: MASAKO

Masako was our tour guide for Tokyo. Since we arrived from Canada the night before, we booked her for two short days (5 hours each) rather than one long and exhausting day. Over those days we covered most of the popular sites and Masako showed us how to use the subway system so we were confident to visit other places on our own. She provided us with a great introduction to Japanese history an...
