What can you expect during the experience?

This package is meant to accommodate children and to make it fun and enjoyable for the whole family! You will be wearing a traditional kimono and our staff will assist you. We’ll also explain how to properly wear it and what to avoid – like wearing the left side over the right to avoid bad luck and superstition.

Girls and ladies will have their hair styled to match their kimonos. Kids may also choose to wear a samurai hakama or ninja outfit if they prefer.

You’ll be having plenty of opportunities to have your photographs taken individually and as a family in our many traditional Japanese settings! We will also provide accessories to make your photos more fun – paper umbrellas, and paper fans to name a few.

We charge a small rental fee if you would like to use our kimonos outside the teahouse. However, if the weather is not good, we may not give this option.

Do you have a minimum number of participants?

This package requires at least three people, including one child.

Can I wear a kimono if I’m pregnant?

Yes. We provide matcha tea, tea ceremony sets, calligraphy sets, and much more available.

Do I need to book in advance?

We recommend booking with us in advance so you don’t have to wait in line, especially during peak seasons in early April and mid-November. This is also cheaper and more convenient.
