Great experience!
Kayla_B

We thoroughly enjoyed this experience! I was amazed at the work going into wearing a Kimono and my children loved the experience as well. They were friendly and answered all of my questions. They did my hair beautifully and we were able to venture around the area taking picture while wearing our Kimonos. There is a beautiful temple nearby that is easily in walking distance.

My husband and I are from the US and he is 6’1” and sometimes clothes, shoes, etc are hard to find. However we were pleased to know they had his size. The ladies were wonderful and very nice. It was quite like a boutique and they even gave me a discount on my hair. (1000yen). Plus, we arrived late the previous day and they let us reschedule to the next day without penalty.

Staff very friendly and nice/all day rental

The staff was very friendly and accommodating, we had booked a fitting for a very busy holiday weekend (unknowingly) so it was very busy. There were many kimono selections but not many men selection for rental. It is an all day rental to be returned by 7pm, that was not described well in the booking but it was nice. They did not also describe that this is a rental only, they have no photo areas to take pictures, you must leave the building and walk to other areas for photos. We paid extra for hair and make-up. I would not recommend the make-up portion. A personal photographer can be added for $150USD per hour, which also should have been described in the listing.

Had a fun time! We got to pick our Kimonos and obis and were allowed to walk around for as long as we wanted as long as we were back by 7 pm. It was very hot when went - so we only lasted a couple of hours - but we had fun. They make for some great pictures. The shoes can be difficult to walk in, so be careful on any uneven ground or when going up/downstairs.

It was a very memorable and cultural experience wearing the yukata. The rental was for the entire day. The staff were really nice. The staff did a good job with the makeup and hairdo. The makeup looked natural and the hairdo lasted the entire day.

I booked this tour to see what's its like to be dressed in Yukata. I went to the shop and I was surprised to find that they were very welcoming. The lady in the shop asked me my choice of Yukata and dressed me in the colour of my choice. After that I went out for a walk in the nearby Temples. I thought I would be getting a funny look from the locals. Far from it, they had seen this before and gave a good gesture of approval. I was out and about for about an hour in the grounds of the temple. I even asked some people to take my photo and they obliged. On getting back to the shop, I changed in my original clothes. I even had a photo taken with others at my request and their approval who were in the shop for the same reason. No problem. It was an experience to savor and something to remember of my trip in Kyoto, Osaka. I would recommend to anyone who wants to experience this Yukata or Kimono, go ahead and don't be shy.
