Rent a Kimono and Enjoy Kyoto! Recommended Sightseeing Courses


Sightseeing in Kyoto used to be associated with visiting temples, shrines, and Buddhist temples, but recently, hands-on activities such as making Japanese sweets and scent bags have become popular. For those who want to enjoy Kyoto’s unique atmosphere, we recommend renting a kimono or yukata and strolling the streets of Kyoto in a kimono or yukata.

Kimono rentals are easy, yet popular because they offer an extraordinary experience and the streets of Kyoto look great in kimonos. Strolling around in a kimono is a wonderful way to experience Japanese culture and traditions, and the many photo-worthy sights make for a memorable trip.

Here are some recommended sightseeing courses to visit with kimono rentals.

Kiyomizu Temple Area Course

For those who want to rent kimonos but do not have much time, we recommend the course around Kiyomizu-dera Temple.

Kiyomizu-dera Temple is a famous spot known for “jumping off the stage at Kiyomizu” and is a historic temple dating back to the Heian-kyo period. The temple offers such a spectacular view of Kyoto city and the “Jishu Shrine” on the temple grounds is extremely popular among women as a god of marriage, and is crowded with people every day.

Next to Kiyomizu-dera Temple, let’s visit Ishibe Koji, one of the most popular small streets in Kyoto. Located between “Nene-no-michi” and “Shimogawara-dori” where many tourists come and go, the old-fashioned streets have an emotional atmosphere and are perfect for a stroll in a kimono. Since most of the passersby are locals, you can enjoy a quiet stroll.

Yasaka Shrine Area Course

There is “Yasaka Shrine,” famous for the Gion Festival, and “Bigozensha Shrine,” where people are said to become beautiful if they pray by dipping their skin in the sacred water. In addition, “Yasaka Koshindo,” where many brightly colored amulets called “kukuri monkeys” are hung, is popular among young women as a photogenic spot where kimonos can be displayed.

Yasaka Shrine to Fushimi Inari Course

Fushimi Inari-taisha Shrine, famous for the thousand torii gates that stretch to the top of Mt. Inari, is known for its beauty and is visited by many tourists from overseas. The Uji Bridge, built in 646, is said to be the oldest bridge in Japan, and is said to have transported visitors back in time.

In addition, there is Toji Temple, a temple associated with Kukai and registered as a World Heritage site. Its symbolic five-story pagoda is located a short distance away from the downtown area, allowing visitors to enjoy a stroll without crowds.

Kamo River to Yasaka Shrine, Hanamikoji Course

The Kamo River, which runs through Kyoto from north to south, is a river known for its summer Noryo-doko, and the riverbed is a promenade, making it ideal for a stroll. Then, from Shijo Ohashi Bridge, proceed along Shijo Street to reach Yasaka Shrine.

On the way from the Kamo River to Yasaka Shrine, along the main street “Shijo Street” is the “Gion Shopping Street” with restaurants and souvenir shops. It is roofed, so you can enjoy strolling even in bad weather.

Walking along the Gion shopping street in the direction of Yasaka Shrine, you will see an elegant alley on the right. Lined with Kyoto’s unique Kyo-machiya townhouses, it is lit by the lights of stores and street lamps at nightfall, creating an enchanting atmosphere. There you will enjoy a different kind of Kyoto charm.
