My partner and I made a booking months in advance for (i) kimono rentals, (ii) a location photoshoot at Gion and (iii) hairstyling. It was hands down, the best decision we made! We have been recommending this place to many of our friends who are planning a trip to Kyoto. Not sure why so many reviews here are complaining about... More

We booked in advance to get the 2,500 yen deal, and arrived at 3pm as we wanted to wear the kimono to do a 5pm tea ceremony workshop. The process was very efficient and we were shunted from one place to the next so never had to think about what we needed to do. Initially my oldest daughter and I... More

The staffs were all kind and supportive. Most of all, I really liked there were a tons of kimonos so that I can choose what I... More

外国の友人が来日し、着物を着たいというので予約して伺いました。修学旅行の生徒で混雑して忙しかったとは思いますが、店員の方々の対応が悪く、友人に申し訳なかったです。館内全体的に雰囲気が悪かったので、きっと店員の雰囲気が伝わっているのだと思います。レンタル料は他店よりも安いと思いますが、外国人にはもっと日本のいい部分が出ているお店に案内したいと思いました。いい思い出が台無しになりかねないと思いました。ただ、着物や帯の種類はありますし、マジックテープみたいな簡易的な帯でもないので、着物体験は出来ます。 I took my friends whose are from US to this Kimono shop. It was great memory expect for shop assistants. Most of assistants had a bad attitude, we know that the shop was very crowded by students of high school trip at that time, but I was very disappointed their. Good poin of this shop was just only cheep... More

Last month my daughter and I had a day in Kyoto experiencing the old traditional Japan. We decided to explore the kimono rental idea. You could dress up in a kimono with handbag, shoes and socks or complete the experience by having your hair and makeup done like a real Geisha girl. We opted just for the dressing up. This... More

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighborhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
