  • Arrived on time for our appointment but felt overwhelmed and lost as customers kept pouring in and they kept serving those furisode customers (higher-end package) and we felt insignificant and adrift....  more »
  • This kimono rental service is convinient, fast, and they have lots of choices and possibilities. Though the dressing up face could have been more personal, I understood it was very busy and they were....  more »
  • There are many kimono hires in Kyoto area, but I found this to be one of the cheaper ones. The ladies at the place were very efficient and quick with dressing and undressing us! They took their time.....  more »
  • The ladies were really nice and had a great selection of kimonos. My hair was done excellently. The process of getting dressed was rushed and it was a whirlwind from the moment the elevator door opened up. But they took us as soon as we arrives even though it was a little bit before our scheduled appointment. The location is excellent too near a lot of nice shopping and a lovely park.
  • Got this on Viator. Staff fluent in Chinese and Japanese but seemed at a loss for what to do with this large awkward American cluttering up their floor. Kimono are polyester and hot when the temperatures are high. They don’t have feminine sandals over a size 8—I had to wear men’s, and even those were a touch small. The bright spot was one Chinese customer who spoke great English. She was getting a fullon princess treatment with a photographer and everything. She gave me recommendations. The staff was doing this for other patrons—but not me. I guess language was a barrier, but I didn’t feel like I was having fun. I felt like I was in the way. They also offer hair styling for an additional fee. This really makes it. While the stylist was frustrated because I couldn’t tell her to just “do whatever you like,” she did work wonders with my short bob cut and arranged some ornaments nicely. I did enjoy the flurry of Chinese customers getting their kimono and hairdos on. They were all so excited and happy! I felt like we were all in on this together, even if we couldn’t understand each other. Maybe try some other place down the street if you’re a tall gaijin like me. If you’re Chinese, I think you will be pleased :)
  • I had a good experience. I had an appointment at 11am and there was not many people there when I arrived so it was easy and smooth process. Hair design was included in the price and I liked the selection of kimonos they had. Good price and service was quick. Speak Chinese, Japanese, and English.
  • Terrible experience! No manner, either Chinese or Japanese crew. The Japanese old lady even said 'they look like dead' in face, given that she knew my friend can understand Japanese, which is more than rude. NO MANNER, NO RESPECT, TERRIBLE.
  • Friendly staff. Japanese and Chinese speaking staff. Could be busy sometime. Great selection of clothing. Hair design is quick and awesome.
