How to rent a Kimono There are a number of Kimono renting shops in Kyoto, and I have tried a few on them over all these days. This time l recommend you all this shop which provide us with professional service in a very fair price.
Basic plan of Kimono rental: 2500 yan
Yumeyakata Usually the price of kimono renting in Kyoto ranges from 3000-5500 yan.
[more expensive at another great shop :OKAMOTO] If you just want to experience and don't want to spend too much, Yumeyakata is a great choice. 2500 yan is all you need.However, if you want to add some luxury items to your total kimono look like I did, extra cost is needed.Such as my beautiful inner kimono, which show as a red inner layer with flower pattern need extra 500 yan. I think it was totally worth it, otherwise you will only have a plain white one. The white rope on the OBI( the belt) needs another 300 yan.
|The Janpanese sandle and bag are included in the package|
Beauty service The look can't be totally unless you also have a nice make up and hair updo. As a considerate shop,Yumeyakata provide make up and hair service too.After you pick the kimono and paid , the professional kimono master will help you to wear it.Then you will be lead to the beauty salon at the same building.My hair do is about 1050 yan. If you need make up, it only cost 2000 yan.Oh! I was love in first sight with this pearl and flower hair accessory ,which cost 1000 yan.
Love, Canria Caselli.
