Authentic, beautiful Yukata plan \3500

The Price includes tax, hair accessories, summer underwear, yukata shoes, and etc. Nothing should be prepared in advance.
Also, we offer all types of yukata with same price! No ranking differences.

Summer kimonos, called YUKATA is ready for you!

We will be ready to offer our Yukata plan from May 1st.

Even though it seems a bit early for yukata as kimono schedule, if it's so hot, you can wear yukata instead of kimono. We can arrange yukata dressing like Kimono too.


Yukata is a casual summer wearing in Japan, and very popular and comfortable like a summer dress.
So people in Japan often wear Yukata for summer night, fireworks festivals, and Bon dancing party!

Compared with Kimono, Yukata is very casual and easy to wear because of less layers.
However, it would be really difficult to dress beautifully, and securely.
So, we carefully pay attention to the lines and figures to make your yukata style perfect!
Also, our Obi belt arrangements are the must-see!
We are not using easily generated obi belt, but arranged to make great figures with long obi-belts by hands.
It will be beautifully arranged on your backside.


We selected our yukatas with holding to our uncompromising standards!
Some are all hand-sowing, traditionally dyed with indigo and the deep blue is indescribably beautiful.
Cool, beauty, elegant, cute, modern, antique...!!! Any style you want !
You can be what you want to be with our yukata!
