Kimono Styling Tour

Would you like to wear an authentic Japanese kimono in style?

We believe the kimono experience to be something special and personal.
For this reason we started offering our personalized kimono experience in which we will style you in a theme or colors of your choice.
Do you want to try a modern edgy kimono look? Or a retro inspired look like in the 1920s? Perhaps you want to rock a kimono or rather have a cute and traditional dress code?

Choose the theme and we will do what we love most – style you from head to toe!

What's included?

・A fun packed afternoon in an authentic kimono
・Fashionable & personalized kimono styling you can’t get anywhere else
・Full kimono rental for ladies & gents
・Basic knowledge about kimono
・A local stroll through Tokyo’s neighborhoods
・6 edited pictures per person

Who can join?

Anyone really!
Wanting to try a Japanese kimono during your visit to Japan?
Living in Japan but want to wear kimono a different way and explore the city off the beaten path?
Celebrating a special occasion?

Either alone, with a friend, partner or child - everyone is welcome to join.
(Even if the other party prefers not to wear kimono, that is fine as well!)

Inspiring

Hello Anji, I wanted to express a little bit my whole experience and words of gratitude to you! I was literally honored to be your first customer to experience such a magnificent experience of wearing a Japanese kimono that you styled for me! It was a great day and not only the whole wearing part or taking pictures, but talking with you was so fun and i felt so positive and happy afterwards! I wish you only the best and hope you will have many customers and lots and lots of fun! I was very nervous about lots of things at first and you know my start of the day was not best because of allergy, but i am glad i could cope with it and even without a make up we got great pictures! Especial thanks for always tying my shoes >.< You really inspired me to keep my own journey into the world of Japanese traditional wear and i will always get inspiration from you. I absolutely love your style and you are totally an amazing inspirational person! Keep up your great work.

Wonderful experience

I booked Anji for the Kimono Styling tour and I am SO happy that I did! Anji is so knowledgeable, approachable and patient. She took what I wanted and presented unbelievable options for my tour. From the faux capelet, the red Moschino gloves to the retro up-cycled obi! Everything was a dream! The attention of detail she puts into her work really makes her stand out. She made me feel so comfortable being in front of the camera despite being in a completely different country with different customs and my own personal language barrier to deal with. I chose the option for a hair & makeup artist, and I had no regrets. The HMUA Anji was in contact was professional, and delivered what I wanted. I have ALOT of stubborn curly hair. So transforming my hair into a “vintage vibe” is no small feat! I have to disclose that it was still quite hot and humid when we did the tour, but my hair and makeup completely stayed in place! The pictures that Anji delivered are absolutely AMAZING!! I love how there’s a good balance between candid and posed photos. Anji went above and beyond my expectations in terms of professionalism, attitude and flexibility. I just wanted to thank you for being able to make this kimono styling tour the best experience I’ve had!

Pre-Wedding Kimono outing

Really glad to have joined SALZ’s Kimono experience tour with my better half before the government allowed travelling to Tokyo officially. We chanced upon SALZ’s instagram and fell in love with her kimono style and thought it would be a good idea to have a fun casual photoshoot before our actual wedding photoshoot in Korea. Anji is really friendly and I felt comfortable to discuss with her about the styles, themes we would like. She offers a variety of kimonos and is generous for letting us use some of her accessories for the photoshoot. The makeup and hairstyling was not in the package but it can be arranged at a reasonable price. The guys helping with the makeup & hair are very friendly and brimming with positivity too. I felt so much positivity on that day surrounded by people who love what they are doing. Me and my husband were totally in love with the kimonos we have chosen. We really appreciate Anji’s effort to make sure that the places we are visiting were opened on that day. She brought us to a teahouse near Shibamata and we also walked around Asakusa. She shared with us her knowledge on kimono throughout the trip and you can just feel her loves for kimono. I will definitely recommend my overseas friends to join this tour when they visit Japan.

Anji is such an amazing person. Before the kimono tour she asked me a lot about what kind of style, colors I like the most so she could choose the best kimono for me. During the tour, Anji was very easy to talk to, open minded and patient. I would recommend her for anybody who wants to wear vintage/original kimono.
