Using a white fabric and a string and be covered by layers and layers, it looks like a very complicated method of dressing. But under the dressing technique of the experienced professional teacher, the gorgeous dressing ritual is completed in a short time. The use of a butterfly bow tied around the back of the waistband adds a lovely touch to the kimono.

Take a stroll to Fushimi Inari Shrine
Fushimi Inari Shrine is famous for its thousands of vermilion torii gates, so it’s the perfect place to go to when wearing a kimono. You could even live out scenes from “Memoirs of Geisha!” There are also many street vendors on the way to the shrine if you get a bit peckish.

I have been to many kimono rental shops in Kyoto, but this was the most fun I’ve had choosing my kimono, hairstyle, and makeup! And it was all done in a relaxing atmosphere without hurry! They only accept a maximum of 20 people a day, so it felt like a real VIP-experience! You can also take photos with Kaji, a Shiba Inu, who is so cute! I truly enjoyed my kimono experience here.
