Stroll around Kyoto in a kimono
The main business of the company is the "fabrics, sewing, and dyeing" of kimonos. We have dealt with kimono stores nationwide, Kyoto Yuzen and fabric stores in each production area, so we have prepared many silk kimonos that are particular about "fabrics, sewing, and dyeing" at our rental stores.
In order to make the most of your time while waiting for your kimono to be put on, we have set up a dim sum place on the 1st floor where you can take a break and enjoy the "authentic taste". You can use it without renting a kimono.
