Asakusa Kimono Rental &Japanese Cultural activities
Kimono is a Japanese traditional dress. Up to 19th century, people in Japan had worn Kimono from in daily life to special occasions.
There are several types / ranks of Kimono, and people wear them depends on the events or scenes. Also, people care about season when they choose Kimono to wear.
With each season, the materials and patterns should be selected properly.

It is very enjoyable for everyone, from individual to a large group.
You can bring origami art to your home as great souvenirs of your stay in Japan.
You will notice that Kimono tells us beautiful spirits of Japanese culture.
The remnants will be changed to hair accessories, dolls, small bags and etc.
Even one piece of remnant should not be wasted.
Also, people often express their respect toward nature when they wear Kimono.
Kimono has so many patterns on it, such as flowers, rivers, leaves, fishes, birds and etc. People wear Kimonos that should be fit to the season, and respect all lives in nature.
