The famous Gion district is known for its geisha culture, and you can now experience walking through the streets of Kyoto dressed in kimono and embrace a tradition respected by the locals to this day. Upon arrival at the rental store, you will be greeted by multilingual staff who will assist you in English, Chinese, Japanese, or Korean. You will offered a large variety of prints and textiles to choose from, which can be overwhelming, but don't worry, the staff are happy to help you pick out a kimono that is perfect for you. Putting on a kimono is tricky and complicated to most, so learn the secrets of how to wear and move around gracefully in a kimono from the staff. If you opt for the hair styling add-ons or choose the 'Luxurious Kimono' package, you will even get your hair done to reflect your full attire. Once you are ready, you can stroll through Kyoto in style and fully immerse yourself in the traditional atmosphere of the city. Simply return your rentals before 7:00pm on the same day, or experience a Kyoto evening in your kimono by extending your rental period to the following day for a small fee.
