Where To Rent Kimono In Tokyo 👘 + Sakura Hobonichi! 🌸

Hi everyone!

Finally had some time to blog about this~! I’m so happy, yaaaay!

If you haven’t watched it yet, I uploaded this Hobonichi With Me video last week I think.

Hobonichi With Me | Tokyo Kimono Rental + Sakura x Starbucks Japan 👘 🌸

If you are visiting Tokyo this sakura season and you’re interested in renting a kimono, I found a great kimono rental shop that you might want to check out. I discovered this on my own while asking google for help so.. to those who are wondering, this is not a sponsored post. Haha!

Before I write about my experience, let me share these photos of the matcha parfait from Denny’s before Lirei & I went on a kimono date.

……….

okay let’s move on now lol

I booked through their website to reserve the day before. I’m not really sure if walk-in visits are allowed but I think that the shop gets really busy so it’s best to reserve online so you can get your preferred time.

My friend and I availed the Standard Kimono Plan and Standard Hairdo.

Standard Kimono Plan = 3500 -> 2900 (discounted)

Standard Hairdo = 900

All in all, Lirei & I just paid 3800 JPY each. What a reasonable price for an excellent service! I suggest that you also try getting your hair professionally done. : )

If you buy a kimono set and all, it costs a LOT so renting is always the more affordable option. 😉

(though I’d love to own my own kimono set one day, haha. gambarimasu lol)

They also have photography services and other cool stuff so just roam around their website for more info 🙂

If you are going to Kyoto too, they have many kimono rental shops available. I haven’t tried their services in Kyoto yet though.

Life Lately + Hobonichi Diaries + Kyoto Trip Preview 🍵

Hi everyone!

After long week doing various work, I’m so happy that I finally got the time to post and update this blog!

Ever since 2017 started, a LOT has happened. It’s been such a whirlwind lately but I’m just really grateful that even though it’s been a rough start (work-wise), things seem to be working out for me. I’m getting shocked almost every other day, lol!

Anyway, let me just narrate a few things from notable (and regular) days. ^^

Being able to film during my free time (lunch breaks and mornings before work, haha) is something that I will be always thankful about!

Indeed, if you really want something to kick off, you have to make time for it. This year, I aim Rainbowholic.TV to really grow 🙂

Little by little, I’ll get there. ^^

Such a fine day in Kyoto. Wearing Kimono during my birthday in my most favorite place in the world was the best for me.

Taking days off every year for solo travel really freshens up my spirits.

The little things such as admiring this view while inside the train just make me so giddy like a child. Reminds me of the time I traveled solo to Hokkaido too!

Rented a kimono in Arashiyama (Yume Kyoto Kimono) and chose this adorable design! Simple but kawaii!

Getting surprises and gifts such as this from random strangers (hello, Yume Kyoto Kimono staff!) = aahhhh best feeling!

How many times have I typed “best” / “happy” words here? Haha! I’m running out of synonyms!

Matcha matcha!

I wanted to freeze this moment so bad. So peaceful, serene and perfect. Me and my matcha dessert for breakfast, haha!
