Kimono Rental With my Thai GirlfriendReviewed by: Yuutaro, 2016/08/12
In April, my Thai girlfriend and I went together for this kimono rental experience. Unfortunately, it was a little rainy outside, but the meeting place for the activity was inside and the shop had a classy feel. The person who helped us put on the kimono spoke English, and I noticed a lot of non-Japanese customers. My girlfriend can't speak any Japanese, so this was really helpful for us.
We went to wear kimono together, and even as a guy, I thought it was really fun. More than that, my girlfriend was happy and that was the best. It seems like many people have an interest in Japanese kimono, so if you have friends from overseas, you should definitely bring them to do this.
Since you can wear the kimonos for the whole day (until 6pm), we got on the train and headed for Asakusa. It was kind of funny since so many travelers were staring at us. We had a lot of people ask to take pictures with us. It felt like we were famous.
After that, we wandered around Tokyo Skytree, Ginza and the Imperial palace, wearing the kimono to our heart's content! I definitely recommend this to travelers. I really enjoyed this tour.

The Best experienceReviewed by: Chacha(misaki), 2016/07/04
Love this place so much. OMOTENASHI NIHONBASHI is the best place to try dressing Kimono with dressing kimono expert and leran the proper way to wear Kimono. You can choose your own Kimono and Obi. You can walk around Tokyo while wearing Kimono but you have to return Kimono before 6.00 P.M.
บริการดีมากค่ะ เอาใจใส่ทุกรายละเอียดของการแต่งตัวเขาจะมีกิโมโนให้เราเลือกสีตามที่ชอบ และโอบิให้เราเลือกเองได้ แต่ตอนที่เราแต่งเราให้เขาช่วยเลือกกิโมโนให้เลยเพราะเราไม่รู้ว่าชุดไหนสีไหนเข้ากับตัวเรา เขาก็เลือกให้เลย น่ารักค่ะสไตล์คนญี่ปุ่นจะน่ารักๆเรียบร้อยเอาใจใส่และดูแลลูกค้าดี เราสามารถใส่ชุดไปเดินเล่นข้างนอกได้ด้วย แต่ต้องคืนก่อน6โมงเย็น.
Arigatou gozaimasu :)

This kimono rental area was very run. The place was very clean and although the dresser's English was limited, she was very nice and very hospitable. There were enough beautiful kimonos the choose from and service was professional.
Kimono RentalReviewed by: Shannon and Lynn, 2015/05/15
We were very well received and greeted by the staffs and the owner when we stepped into the shop which is located on the 4th Level of a nice shopping mall. Then we were brought to a room to select our kimono before the friendly staffs helped us to dress up. Very professional. The selection of Kimono may not be as wide range as compared to Kyoto's Kimono rental shops. However, is good enough. One bonus was the staffs will match the chosen textile with your skin tone and advise accordingly.
We wore the kimono and shop around at Ginza area before we have to return the rental set by 6p.m. If possible, we would hope that they could provide make-up or hair doing services liked those shops at Kyoto. We were dressed up beautifully but without a nice hair do and makeup (since we are tourists).
Will recommend to anyone who has yet to try putting on Kimono..... to check out the shop.
