"When we walked around Asakusa, we instantly noticed that our Kimono really stood out from the tourists who were wearing fusion, simplified Kimono.  We were greatly impressed how she stick to the traditional Kimono, but adds more beauty and color into it. Kimono rental at Birei was one of the most memorable moment from the trip, and we were so happy that we had this experience with such expertise."(google comment)

"We made a last minute reservation with them one day before one of the most popular summer festival in Tokyo. It was great that Maiko was able to squeeze a time slot for us despite her busy schedule. She is a very nice lady and even allowed us to reserved our desired yutaka (as our time slot was very late). Very fluent in English. Location is easily located and a few minutes walk from Asakusa. Very affordable and most of their yutaka looks good. Couldn't recommend more!! (Google comment)"

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!


After dressing kimono, your Jinrikisha will pick you up from our place to Kaminarimon gate (15min).
