Story & Recommendation
Ichimanben is a kimono store that began from the wishes of university students
Kyoto and kimonos go hand in hand. If you start your trip in Osaka, almost no-one is wearing a kimono, but once you get to Kyoto and especially Gion, it seems like every other woman is wearing one and some men are also in the trend. Kimonos have an image as something very expensive, but ichi·man·ben is a store that tries to change this. The store, located close to subway Karasuma Oike Station, began because the students of Kyoto University wanted a place where they could buy reasonably priced kimonos fit for the younger generation. Even some of the interior is made by students! So this kimono store offers these Japanese garments for reasonable prices, but read below if you’d like to know more.
