This was so much fun and such a great learning experience! The cooking class leaders were so kind and even though I could not speak much Japanese, they were very accommodating and spoke enough English for us to understand how to make each dish. The view of the sumida River was amazing, and we even got to use the glass cups we used for the kiriko class for some green tea with our meal. Both classes were so fun, and I am so appreciative of the attentiveness of the staff at both the edo kiriko studio and the cooking class. Would definitely recommend going!
If you are new to renting a Kimono, look no further. They have many Kimonos with a variety of colors and patterns to choose from. If you cannot decide, they will give advice on which one to choose based on your skin color or body type. Their rate is unbeatable. The staff are helpful. Their service is good. And, they will provide professional advice while wearing the Kimono. Just do not expect too much. What you will get at this rental shop is quite enough to have a memorable experience. Speak no Japanese? No problem: they have somebody to interpret for you. We chose English interpretation, and it was good enough. Option wise, we opted for the "Early Bird," and it provided us with enough time to walk around Asakusa to take pictures. It gave us 2.5 hours in the afternoon, and we thought we had a good deal. If you want plenty of time to take pictures, even get out of Asakusa to visit other parts of Tokyo in Kimono, go for the whole day option. You will pay extra for it, of course, but it will not break the bank. You need to remember that if you opt for the whole day option, you must return the Kimono by/at 4:30 PM. And, if you opt for the Early Bird option, you can return the Kimono by/at 5:30 PM. Just do not be late. If you are late, they will charge you extra fee. Overall, we recommend this shop highly, for we had a good experience with them like many others before us. The reviews others had left before us, helped us greatly in choosing the right shop; this one. We hope our review will help you, too, in choosing the right shop for your Kimono experience. Good luck! Happy hunting! Do not forget your camera!
I am rating the shop with 5 stars for the following reasons:
1. The price for the rental of the kimono complete with all the accessories is very competitive and reasonable;
2. The selection we were given for the price that we paid was not so wide but pretty. We were given the chance to upgrade but we didn’t have to because we were able to choose right away the kimono and obi print that we loved.😍
3. The ladies who assisted us were very friendly and efficient in all the tasks they did. They can also speak good English.
I will definitely go back there next time. Thank you for the superb service.👍👏🥰
I used a hakama plan to have my friends wear it. In a nutshell, I'm very happy with this rental! Although it was reasonably priced, the fabric was solid and the color pattern was cute, and the hair set made short hair beautifully braided. Also, thanks to the fact that everything was completed in a short time of about 1 hour from the reserved time, I was able to fully enjoy the schedule after that. Even though it was a long walk in Asakusa, it was very good that my kimono and hair did not collapse. My friend, who was new to hakama, was relieved to say that it wasn't painful. Above all, I would like to thank all the staff of Hua Ya for their warm and courteous response from beginning to end! It was fun to talk a lot, and I was happy to remember that he took pictures outside. It was my first time to use such a rental, so I was a little worried, but I'm glad to meet Kamiya from many shops ◎ Please come back to Asakusa. If you are thinking of using it in the future, please feel free to enjoy the rental (* ^^ *) Thank you very much for this time!
