YUME KYOTO (KIMONO EXPERIENCE)

Yume-Kyoto is a quality Kimono-rental store, located in just a minute walk from the Yasaka Shrine. Here, you can find a beautiful collection of Kimonos which the store specifically had made for itself, not second-hand ones as other rental stores may rent. It is fun to take time to choose one that you really love from its wide selection of designs ranging from colorful to chic. Men’s traditional costumes are available as well. No knowledge of Kimono is necessary. Professional stylists offer traditional hair styling as well as dressing. It will be a fantastic memory to take a walk in the city of Kyoto, dine at Kaiseki (Japanese traditional cuisine) restaurant, or enjoy tea ceremony at En, wearing your favorite kimono. En, a Japanese tea house, is just a minute walk from Yume-Kyoto.
