My husband and I are visiting beautiful Kyoto this November. We're thinking about trying kimonos and would love to gather some information beforehand:
Will it be difficult to walk around in kimono and Japanese sandals in November?
What do locals think of male tourists walking around in kimono? (My husband insists on asking this.) :)
As there are no festivals in November, what are the best places to visit in kimono without attracting too much attention?
What are some tips on wearing kimonos like locals? (which colors and patterns for autumn, obi style etc)
Do shops wash rental kimonos after every use?
And lastly, any recommendation on reputable kimono rental shop?
