Why using the Kimono on-call rental service from Rinka?

Compare to other Kimono Rental Service,
there are 2 advantages we would like to share!


Point ①

No worry if you encounter a relatively cold weather,
you don't have to go to the store in person.

Also, if you are going with your mom and dad or some elders,
this on call service would same the time and 
allow them to experience it comfortably. 
Just stay at the hotel and wait for someone to help you getting ready to go out in Kimono.


Point ②
Chance to dress up in an excellent standard of Kimono,
even Japanese won't have. 

Professional staffs of course would help
dressing and coordinating the Kimono with you!

Not only the patterns of the Kimono are in an excellent standard, 
but also the material used and the combination of the items. 
In addition, 
the professional staff is very detailed and prompt to put on the Kimono with you.
※She also would teach you how to act, walk and going to restroom 
while in Kimono dressing. 

Rinka provides a various of choice for rental


Definitely, 
when you look at the picture of the Kimono, 
you would feel the extraordinary of it. 
As mentioned above, 
not only beautiful patterns, good materials,
elegant colors and combinations,
but the new transformation of overall style and atmosphere.

These kimono are unique that even Japanese themselves
have few chance to encounter them.

If you wanna put layer under the kimono,
remember don't have the high collar ones. 
Coz you know one of the points for kimono is
to show the naked neck!

In general, 
it is said that it is better to take off the bar while wearing Kimono.
Coz Kimono is wearing pretty tight, 
if you are afraid of pressure on your upper body,
you might think of taking off.
But it depends,
do the comfortable way yourselves.

After putting on kimono, 
a gift is prepared for you!
