Special experience

I had a wonderful time visiting various kimono shops with Anji on our kimono shopping tour! She was able to make a special introduction at a kimono design company I had admired for a long time, allowing us to visit their HQ which is not normally open to the public! It was such a special and unique experience that I never would have been able to arrange on my own.

In addition to this, we visited an array of vintage kimono shops as well where I found some beautiful antique pieces. We both found some really special, unique kimono pieces and I can’t wait to wear them back home!

Wonderful success!

The kimono shopping tour was a wonderful success! Anji is clearly very passionate, knowledgeable, and experienced with kimono. She took me to many great stores I otherwise would never had found.
I was searching for very specific things style and material wise which generally were out of season (besides the fact that finding kimono for men is in itself already more difficult), but I was still able to find a great and varied amount of clothing thanks to her — as much within what I was looking for, as what I wasn't originally interested in or even aware of. Her translations throughout the tour were also invaluable. Again, thank you so much Anji!

Cool finds!

As a person who is interested in wearing kimono, I can tell that the kimono tour by SALZ Tokyo is a great opportunity for diving into the world of kimono. Especially if you are beginner you can explore various cool shops together with Anji as an advisor and you will learn a lot about the traditional Japanese garment.
Even if you are a professional in wearing kimono, you may will find special items and get some insider tips about the best shops in Tokyo. As far as I am concerned, I intended to buy some modern kimono items, so the tour was specially geared to my request and my budget.

Besides the choice of shops, Anji is a pleasant and open-minded person standing by your side as your advisor. Not only that she supported me to find fitting kimono items, she even explained a lot about the kimono culture in Japan. Especially for me as a beginner in wearing kimono, the tour helped me to improve my knowledge about kimono. I can strongly recommend the kimono shopping tour and I am looking forward to wear my freshly purchased kimono outfits. I bought a lot of cool Items within my budget, I explored interesting shops and all in all I had a great day. It will be an unforgettable memory of my journey in Japan.
