  • Asako is a lovely professional Dresser that will make your unique "kimono" experience! His french is excellent and she makes you share his love of Japanese culture. My husband and I have been dressed in kimono and held Samurai. I also bought a beautiful child kimono and a yakuta for a very affordable price (10 500 yen for 2). Unique moment!
