On arrival at one of the three Asakusa Kimono rental stores, you'll be presented with a wide array of colorful kimonos to choose from. Yukata (summer kimonos) are available for the hotter months whilst the 'hakama with casual furisode' is the popular option for graduating female students, a tradition dating back to the Meiji Period. Make your selection before being whisked into the styling area where skilled experts will diligently dress you in your kimono (complete with robe, obi, bag, socks, shoes and shawl) and hair styling with decorative ornaments. After this you'll have free time to stroll through Asakusa, an area which still retains a very traditional Tokyo atmosphere - the perfect backdrop for your photos! The Tokyo Kimono Experience offers a choice of packages designed for individuals, couples, friends and graduating students, and services in English, Japanese or Chinese.
