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,...More

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
