In Kyoto, where there are many world-famous temples and shrines, you see many people wearing the traditional dress of Japan, the Kimono. There are certainly many people who would like to wear a Kimono once in their life, but Kimonos are very expensive. They often cost several hundreds of thousands of Yen. What’s more, it’s difficult to put them on, so that there are even special classes where you can learn how to dress a Kimono.

The Chaka Kimono Rental Shop solves these problems by offering a service which enables you to easily enjoy wearing a Kimono. Chaka is a long-established Kimono shop which provides a Kimono rental service designed to offer easy Kimono rental which can be enjoyed to the fullest.
