The kimono wearing experience is very popular among foreign tourists.
Even in Japan, there are very few people who wear kimono on a regular basis.
When we wear a kimono, the scenery around us looks different. It’s fun to experience this special atmosphere.
If you want a different kind of Kimono wearing experience, try the Kimono dressing service by Ms. Michael Yui!
Ms. Michael Yui Maejima’s specialty is called “out-there”, and coordinates a combination of kimono and clothes, hats, and accessories.
If you want to walk around in a stylish kimono that gets attention, try her kimono dressing service!
