As you might know, renting kimono is quite popular in Kyoto. However, most kimono rental shops offer polyester kimono instead of silk ones. kimono made from this fabric get worn out easily and don't breathe well, making wearing them an uncomfortable experience. Also, to preserve the condition of the material, the staff tend to tie your sash tighter than necessary, which makes things even worse. In addition, many polyester kimonos have flashy patterns. While these may be popular with younger women, they tend to prefer more authentic patterns as they get older. They say the first impression is the most important one, and this applies to kimono as well. We at Kokoyui want to make your first kimono experience one that you'll treasure forever.
