4 Years of Sharing JapanLove 🇯🇵 + Our Original JLM Souvenir Jacket 🌊

Hi everyone!

Last April 12, Japan Lover Me turned 4 years since our first launch. A lot has changed since then! : )

So happy that this baby of ours has been consistently progressing over the years! 🙂

It’s been a very challenging adventure but we’re all in for the fun ride!

Just yesterday, the actual boxes for JLM STORE & souvenir jacket samples from our partner maker have arrived!

I’m so proud of this design project because it used to be just an idea before even when we were struggling to setup JLM STORE.

Many thanks to Chichi / Little Miss Paintbrush for always putting your 1000% effort into everything that we all do. :”)

Souvenir jacket preorder will start soon at Japan Lover Me Store! Make sure to subscribe to our mailing list 😉

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.
