Kawagoe Kimono Toku|【Information Share】

      No Comments on Kawagoe Kimono Toku|【Information Share】

Earlier this year a new Kimono Rental shop opened on the main tourist strip of Koedo (little Edo) Kawagoe. It is housed in a refurbished building down a quaint alley, beside an open fronted wooden amulet craft shop.

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
