We are a Kyoto-based shop for renting gorgeous formal kimonos like furisode (long-sleeved kimono) for young ladies, houmongi for women, montsuki hakama (kimono with a family crest, plus traditional Japanese trouser-like garments) for men, and children's kimonos for Shichi-Go-San (Seven-Five-Three) shrine visits. These kimonos are worn for occasions like galas, weddings, tea parties, ceremonies, and graduations. Furisode is the traditional formal attire with gorgeous patterns and long sleeves for unmarried young ladies. We have three ranks of furisode, classified according to materials and patterns. This plan lets you choose your favorite furisode, obi, and decorative items when you come to the store. A fake fur shawl is also available to go with your look. Gentlemen can put on the traditional formal attire called montsuki hakama, a hakama suit with family crest. Montsuki kimono are a formal type of men's kimono, so they're sure to add a touch of class to every occasion. Our dressing service takes about 30 minutes. First, check in at our reception counter, and fill out some basic information. You'll then be given a rental bag and guided to our selection of kimonos, so you can start choosing. Once you're done taking your pick, it's time to get dressed. For women who would like to have their hair done, a hairdressing service is also available as an add-on, which will require an additional 15-20 minutes. While you can also add this service on the day of your appointment, we cannot guarantee that we can accommodate walk-ins. This is a popular service, so booking the hair styling add-on in advance is highly recommended. Once you're all dressed up, just leave your baggage with us, take your valuables, and you're good to go! In total, including the time to leave your baggage with us, the entire process from entering our store until departure is about 1–1.5 hours. Not sure where to go?
