Feel Elevated By Your Kimono When You Hit the Streets 

  • Personal kimono fitting by Engawa Sumida, a Japanese fashion expert and founder of “Japan Refashion Assosiation.”
  • Pick your favorite kimono to rent and head out into the rustic downtown area for photos and tea.
  • The Oshiage area is famous for its rustic shopping streets and old-world feel, all just steps from Tokyo Skytree.

Alight at Oshiage Station and head over to Mukojima in Sumida Ward, just a stone's throw away. Be prepared to have an enthralling and enlightening adventure there from 1-4pm, rain or shine. First off you will be immersed in the kimono world, as your hosts delight you with trendy designs and show you how to wear them fuss-free. They will also advise you on how you can use kimono as a fashion statement to express your feelings for a particular day. Next strut your stuff in your "casual" kimono and explore the nostalgic streets of Shitamachi, where you can still catch a glimpse of what life was like in old Japan. An awesome way to escape from busy downtown Tokyo for a while! We definitely encourage repeat participants, for no one tour is like another. In spring, you can savour the beauty of radiant sakura (cherry blossom) whereas summer enables you to get up close with quaint local omatsuri (festivals), where you get to feel the residents' energy and dynamism first-hand!
