I planed to go to Kitsuki for a week, then I went there with my friends in order to touch with kimono and yukata. Because I am studying in Japan I love Japan. I went there by local train from Beppu station to Kitsuki station...More
If you want to rent the kimono, take the bus to Kitsuki Bus Terminal (杵築バスターミナル) and get off at Kitsuki Shiyakusho (杵築市役所) bus stop. The shop is called Warakuan (和楽庵) and it is recommended that you reserve beforehand. The experience was priceless!
Came here for the kimono rental and it was a great experience! We did a couple rental and there was a small discount. You have to email them to reserve a slot beforehand.
The ladies dressing us were very helpful and dressed us up beautifully!...More

We made our own excursion to this little jewel of a town off of a cruise ship as an alternative to the Beppu onsens. We stumbled on the description of the kimono experience when searching for things to do in the area and sent an...More

However, since it stands in along the seashore, the scene of the castle seen from the sea is beautiful.
Since an old samurai residence and store remain, the rows of houses...More
