Kimono for Kids and Families Unique Experience in Tokyo
Many families traveling to Japan want to immerse themselves into the local culture but worry if the kids get bored or not get engaged with the activities. One of the simple ways to learn about the Japanese Culture is actually wearing the local clothes as kimono is way beyond a simple costume. Did you know
- Kimonos were only one size as they were passed down from generation to generation
- Only children’s kimono had long sleeves to make the wind pass through and cool down during the summer
- Most kimono patterns have symbolic meanings (cranes: longevity; pine: winter; waves: the ocean, etc.)
- Left side of the kimono must be above the right side, otherwise it brings bad luck
In this simple cultural activity you will have a chance to
- Wear traditional kimono (hairdo for ladies)
- Get explanations about the kimono from the staff
- Take lovely and memorable family photos in kimono
- If the kids want, they can choose to wear other local outfit such as a samurai kimono or a ninja costume
This experience in total lasts for about 45 minutes
This experience is cheaper than the regular kimono experience as it is adjusted for young participants.
This activity includes wearing the traditional Japanese kimono so you can take lovely kimono pictures as a family!!!
Note: There needs to be at least 3 participants including one child to reserve for this activity.
