Would you like to wear an authentic Japanese kimono in style?
Tokyo surely offers a lot of cheap kimono rental services to choose from – however I believe the kimono experience to be something special and personal.
For this reason I started offering my personalized kimono experience in which I will style you in a theme or colors of your choice. Do you want to try a modern edgy kimono look? Or a retro inspired look like in the 1920s? Perhaps you want to rock a kimono or rather have a cute and traditional dress code? Choose the theme and I will do what I love most – style you from head to toe!
The kimono and accessories selected are one of a kind vintage items or from my personal collection.
Once the outfit is decided, I will dress you and explain a little about the items you are wearing. Afterwards let’s have a stroll through the neighborhood or travel to a scenic spot in Tokyo to take some pictures, casually enjoy the day and have some local delicacies if you like.
I’ll join you in kimono as well, so it is like a casual day with a friend.
