Renting a yukata in Kyoto is a wonderful sightseeing experience. Dressed in a yukata, you will feel as if you have stepped back in time. You can walk the streets in harmony with the beautiful traditional buildings and scenery. Visiting gardens surrounded by gorgeous flowers and greenery, or touring old shrines and temples, you will feel as if you have wandered into a scene from a movie.
Taking pictures while dressed in yukata is also an enjoyable experience. Taking pictures at Kyoto’s famous landmarks such as Ginkakuji Temple, Nanzenji Temple, or the bamboo grove in Arashiyama will be a wonderful memory as the beauty of the yukata combines with the tasteful background. We also recommend taking pictures on street corners and paths. The combination of the yukata and the elegant streetscape of Kyoto will bring out the best of the city.
You can also enjoy traditional cultural experiences while wearing a yukata. Visitors can experience traditional Japanese culture through tea ceremony, kimono dressing, and performances by gei-maiko (geisha and maiko). These experiences provide an opportunity to feel more familiar with the costume of yukata.
Renting a yukata and visiting photo-worthy spots is a fun way to get the most out of Kyoto. The scenery and atmosphere created by the fusion of tradition and modernity, and the excitement created by dressing yourself in Japanese culture will be a memory you will never forget.
