I have been a Kimono dresser for the past 5 years and know how to wear various types of Kimono. I love offering in-person dressing experiences to Japanese and foreign visitors as well as Kimono dressing classes for beginners in person and even online.
I believe the best thing about Kimono is its ability to connect people across generations and cultures. I will be happy to coordinate your Kimono, Obi, and various accessories depending on whether you want to look casual, fun, or cute.
Let’s enjoy Kimono together!
