Kyoto Kimono Experience Online by Maikoya

Traditionally, Japanese people wear a one-piece garment called kimono which emerged during the Heian period (794-1185). Kimono is made out of silk and each motif has a meaning. Cranes represent longevity; pine-trees represent the new year; the Chrysanthemum flower represents the imperial family. Kimonos usually have long sleeves for wind to pass through and cool down the body. While children wear kimono with bright colors and flower designs, the elderly wear simple kimonos with simple motifs. Nowadays, Japanese people wear Western clothes at work and school but prefer kimono for social occasions and ceremonies.
As the leading cultural experience venue in Japan and we also own and operate a small museum in Gion where we display antique kimonos. We love what we do which is helping people wear a traditional kimono and look their best. We are proud to teach you how to dress in kimono. You may be an experienced kimono fan or just someone who received a kimono set as a gift but has no clue how to put it on. Your host will teach you everything you need and beyond. Your experience/class includes
  • Explanation of symbols and meanings related to kimono
  • Explanations of the differences between various kimono types and yukata
  • Demonstration of how to put on a kimono
  • Demonstration of the ideal hairstyle for kimono
