Kimono  This is the traditional costume in Japan.It has a very long history and still very popular in Japanese nowadays.They usually will wear beautiful Kimonos at big festivals like new year or important occasions. In Kyoto , the city which preserved the ancient beauty of Japan , you can easily meet some beautiful Kimono ladies. Especially  during spring time when the cherry blossom is blossoming, many local people and tourists will put on a Kimono and enjoy the moment to become a  
flower themselves too.

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. 


Yumeyakata
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.


Enjoy  Then you can enjoy your beautiful kimono after your transformation.You can return the Kimono by 19:30 at the same day ,so you will definitely have enough time to take as many beautiful pictures as you want !
