Kimono Experience

Japanese Kimono is colorful and elegant clothing worn by both women and men, usually for formal situations.

The word kimono was once simply what the Japanese called “clothes”, and has slowly evolved into the colorfully patterned robe-and-sash garments we think of today. In Japan’s feudal era, both men and women wore kimono, and even warriors wore them in particular colors to represent which samurai clan they were loyal to. When Japan modernized, the country adopted more Western attire, with kimono being reserved for especially formal situations, such as New Year’s and other national holidays, visits to temples and shrines, weddings, and funerals. With the recent increase of Western interest in Japanese traditional culture, several rental shops have opened in Kyoto to offer visitors to the ancient capital a “kimono experience”. The proprietors assist their customers to select and put on their kimono, then take pictures for an especially memorable keepsake. Some shops will allow, at extra cost, their customers to wear the kimono around Kyoto for the day, granting them a deeper understanding and immersion into this time-honored Japanese custom.
