This was an excellent experience - the staff were very helpful, attentive and thorough. As a tourist I was made to feel very welcome and didn't feel out of place. There were lots of kimonos to choose from and the pictures were included in the package plus giving you 10 minutes free time to take your own photos too. Excellent.

Lovey experience, very relaxing and makes you feel beautiful. The quality of the kimonos is beautiful with so many colours and styles to choose from. It was also nice that your husband can come and see the transformation.
