Kimono Rentals: A Popular Tourist Attraction
For many female tourists visiting Japan from abroad, renting a beautiful kimono for a photo shoot or to enjoy a leisurely stroll in a traditional Japanese neighborhood, a Japanese garden or perhaps on the grounds of a famous temple or shrine is a popular activity, and one which truly allows them to get a sense of experiencing the best of Japanese culture.
Kyoto is particularly rich with opportunities to rent kimonos, and rental shops catering to tourists continue to open around the city.

Kimono rental shop Yumeyakata in Kyoto understood that Muslim women could enjoy the experience even more if their hijabs did not clash or stand out in contrast with the kimonos they were renting.
Therefore, as a new item available in their shop, they have begun renting out specially made hijabs printed in wagara 和柄 (Japanese pattern) designs which perfectly match their kimonos.
