Miyuki

Hello. My name is MIYUKI. I'm the mother of a 1-year-old boy. I learned kimono fashion about 14 years ago and moved to Nagoya for 16 years ago. I've been teaching about kimonos and yukatas to overseas friends for about 5 years. Even now, I continue to learn how to dress with a "first-class dressing technician". In short, there are various ways to wear kimono. I can guide you from traditional dressing methods to modern dressing methods. Of course, I can also teach you about the differences between a kimono and yukata, ryokan yukata, kanpei, etc. The history and the meaning of each can be guided along with the dressing experience.

What's included

Equipment
kimono,jyuban,hanhaba,himo,tabi,zouri,nagoyaobi,obiage,obijime,makura The minimum items to be used in kimono are available.

Where you'll be

Since this is not a tour, we will not guide you around the city after dressing. However, we can introduce you to photogenic spots where you can wear a kimono. There is a street near the store called "Shikemichi" that is the remains of a classic Japanese town. It is a recommended spot that is little known, even by the locals.
