There are quite a few rental shops in Kawagoe, but the demand for rental kimonos has increased over the years. Part of the reason for the increase in popularity is the KIMONO DAY campaign run on the 18th of the month which offers kimono or yukata wearers either a discount or a present in participating shops, restaurants and tourist attractions. This rental shop is particularly accessible, easy to find and reasonably priced. I went to visit it, but I have yet to use their services.
Their website is basic, but it has a little English to aid you make a reservation here: http://kawagoe-kimono.wixsite.com/kimono-rental-toku For Japanese readers, a bit more information from a local estate agent’s blog: http://ameblo.jp/miyako-fudosan/entry-12139426992.html Address: 1-5 Saiwaichō, Kawagoe-shi, Saitama-ken 350-0063, Japan 新規オープン店 川越 キモノ とく｜【川越の不動産屋の娘】が書く日記
