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.
