New Kimono Rental in Harajuku

Hey everyone!

Recently, my friends asked me to help them (as a photographer) for their kimono experience.

We found a new kimono rental shop in Harajuku, and guess what? We think it is one of the best Harajuku-ish kimono shop we have ever been in Tokyo.

Matsuri by First

The shop is located very close to the heart of Harajuku, only 2 mins walk from Takeshita street. So, once you transformed into Kimono girl, you can just step into the main attractions of the area with ease, such as Takeshita street, Meiji Shrine, Omotesando street or Yoyogi park.

I have been to many kimono shops before, but I’d would say that I am very impressed  by the quality of the kimono material and the shop itself. It is up there on the top of my recommend kimono shop list in Tokyo.

Inside the shop

When you come to the 3F of the building, you will feel like stepping into a new world, full of pink. The shop has a lot of space with kimono corner, changing room and hair dressing table. It is very comfortable to walk around choosing the kimono and accessory. Even for people who just come along but don’t dress up (like me), it is still very fun to just take a look at kimono collection.

Hair setting and Make up corner

Good new! Kimono rental plan includes simple hair dressing service. They also have professional hair service (with extra charge) for an event such as graduation ceremony too.

Choose your favorite kimono

What we like the most about this shop is the kimono collection. Here you will find one of the cutest and most colorful kimono in Tokyo. The design is a nice blend between modern and traditional pattern. It fits perfectly to be worn and walk around the most fancy and lively neighbor of Tokyo.

Now we are ready to go!!

There are many accessories such as bag, hair band and shoes that fit the look of Harajuku kimono girls perfectly. Isn’t it nice that everything is prepared all in one place.

Let’s explore Harajuku!!
