When I'm in Kyoto, I always go to Okamoto Kimono to rent a kimono or yukata. The staff are helpful, friendly, and the shop also provides hair styling services which most other rental don't provide. It's also handy to have the option to return it the next day (with a 10,000 yen deposit) if you're planning on having dinner in... More

They have a lot of selection of kimonos, but best to go early as possible to get the best pick! They only do hair no makeup so be prepared with makeup. They are very professional, organized, fast, efficient. Very close to Kiyomizudera Temple so convenient!

They have lots of choices and rental plan to suite your budget. You get to choose the different layers of cloth to go with the kimono, so be prepared to colour match! Don't worry if you can't decide. There is help at hand. The staff is friendly and the service is super efficient.

As I was running late on the day of my appointment, I took a taxi from my hotel near Kyoto station. The journey was about 10 min . The taxi fare cost around 1,100 yen and took me very... More

Many kimonos to choose from especially if you choose the 5000yen plan. Price of hair setting of 500yen is very reasonable. However, some of the accessories e.g. the bag, hair accessory are a bit worn and seems not cleaned well. Staff are very friendly and willing to give their advice if you ask. The dressing/hair styling staff are very efficient.... More

When I ask my daughter what did she enjoy the most about our family holiday in Japan she never hesitates to say dressing in a Kimono at the Kiyomizu Temple. She loved the experience. We paid for the 5000 yen option and only 500 yen for her hair to be styled. After choosing her kimono and accessories she was taken... More

This shop is highly recommended by Taiwanese bloggers, you get a lot different kimonos to pick from and the price is comparatively fare. The three package provided different amount of kimonos for you to choose, the cheaper the less and plain. It also provide hair styling services but you have to pay extra, even more if you want them to... More
