Recommended Information for Kimono Rental During Autumn Kyoto Trips

During large holidays like Silver Week or a 3-day weekend, Kyoto sees a high influx of tourists. Here are some important points to consider when renting a kimono:

  • It's recommended to make a reservation for kimono rental in advance
  • Consider taking a taxi for transportation
  • If you're using the student discount plan, don't forget your student ID
  • Be prepared for crowds and congestion

City buses in Kyoto are often delayed due to traffic congestion, so when traveling with 3-4 people during a Kyoto trip, it's also recommended to consider using a taxi. After renting a kimono, it's more comfortable to walk less than in regular clothing.
