  • The staff is very professional, the dressing and hairstyle are done quickly and beautifully, the choice of kimonos is as wide as beautiful ... for a very decent price! On top of that the property is extremely well located (near Higashiyama and Gion), so you have an ideal setting to walk around and take pictures. Whether you're alone, with friends, as a couple or as a family - I highly recommend it!

  • The whole experience was great. The staff was friendly and very efficient. They did our hair in minutes. My family really enjoyed getting dressed up and walking around taking pics. So glad we decided ...  more »

  • The ladies were really nice and had a great selection of kimonos. My hair was done excellently. The process of getting dressed was rushed and it was a whirlwind from the moment the elevator door opened up. But they took us as soon as we arrives even though it was a little bit before our scheduled appointment. The location is excellent too near a lot of nice shopping and a lovely park.
  • Got this on Viator. Staff fluent in Chinese and Japanese but seemed at a loss for what to do with this large awkward American cluttering up their floor. Kimono are polyester and hot when the temperatures are high. They don’t have feminine sandals over a size 8—I had to wear men’s, and even those were a touch small. The bright spot was one Chinese customer who spoke great English. She was getting a fullon princess treatment with a photographer and everything. She gave me recommendations. The staff was doing this for other patrons—but not me. I guess language was a barrier, but I didn’t feel like I was having fun. I felt like I was in the way. They also offer hair styling for an additional fee. This really makes it. While the stylist was frustrated because I couldn’t tell her to just “do whatever you like,” she did work wonders with my short bob cut and arranged some ornaments nicely. I did enjoy the flurry of Chinese customers getting their kimono and hairdos on. They were all so excited and happy! I felt like we were all in on this together, even if we couldn’t understand each other. Maybe try some other place down the street if you’re a tall gaijin like me. If you’re Chinese, I think you will be pleased :)
