Overview

Wearing traditional costumes, such as kimonos or yukatas, while strolling historical and picturesque streets has become a trend when sightseeing in Kyoto. It is an authentic cultural experience that will unexpedtedly leave you with many beautiful photos and memories not easily forgotten. Yumeyakata is one of the biggest kimono rental shops in Kyoto. We provide kimonos for rent not only for ladies but also for men and children so that the whole family can enjoy the experience together. We can provide all the items you need to wear kimono, so just bring yourself! Our shop is only 10 minutes from famous sightseeing spots like Gion, Kiyomizu Temple and Kyoto Station.
