Our shop was established in Muromachi, Kyoto as a kimono dealer in 1896. With the times, we changed the form of work. Now we are supporting antique kimonos in the early Showa period, rental of town wear and celebration, and utilizing our experiences to support traditional crafts sales. Through the kimono we value the connection of Japanese good culture and family, I would like to be a kimono shop snugly beside you all the time.

Experience wearing history and culture

We rent mainly antique kimono in the early Showa era with high rarity value. Nostalgic coloring and texture are unique to antique kimono. Also, the design at the time does not feel age, rather many innovative things are many and very fashionable is high. A kimono is chosen relaxedly in the shop built for over 100 years, and a professional dresser will dress. Now, let’s wear a nice kimono and go out to the city.

Born out of problem consciousness

We plan and sell original items from the desire to feel more familiar with kimono. To men, it is more cool. For women, those that shine more nicely. All of our original items were born from problem consciousness. The background of the things always aware, we propose unique as the kimono item was not until now.

Help the wedding with traditional costumes

We will support the best day at the wedding which is a milestone of our life. In addition, we support another wedding “wedding photograph plan”. Planning together with the staff such as location shooting around the memorable landscape and directing like one scene of the movie will shape your thoughts. Children’s anniversary shooting such as Shichi-go-san(*1) and a temple visit(*2) is also accepted.
