Access:By bus, 12 min from Kyoto Station to Kiyomizu-michi, then 3 min walk. By bus or taxi, 12 min from Kyoto Station, 7 min from Keihan Shijo Station.


I wrote my wish on a colorful ball at Yasaka Koshin-do Temple in Kyoto. It's a nice place my heart leaps up just looking at them. Your Instagram must be able to get many likes!


Address:Nanzenji Fukuchi-cho Sakyo-ku, Kyoto-shi, Kyoto

Access:10 min walk from Keage Station. 25 min by bus from Kyoto Station to Nanzenji Eikando, then 10 min walk.

I visited Nanzenji Temple, a popular spot for autumn leaves, and Tenju-an Temple, which has two beautiful gardens, in kimono. The autumn leaves in the eastern garden were in full bloom, and it was a magnificent view that you could see forever while sitting on the porch. Another wonderful view that sighs is the autumn leaves in the south garden, which looks like a painting, cut out by the window frame of the Shoin. When I raised my face to buy a ticket at the entrance, I jumped into my eyes first and was fascinated.

Address:Nanzenji Fukuchi-cho Sakyo-ku, Kyoto-shi, Kyoto

Access:3 min walk from Keage Station. By car or taxi, 20 min from Kyoto Station.

Keage Incline has beautiful lush greens in summer. Also, you can see the wonderful scenery every season such as autumn colored leaves and cherry blossoms in spring. For the retro atmosphere, Japanese traditional outfits Kimono and Yukata are excellent with the scenery.


Address:2-3-1 Asakusa, Taito-ku, Tokyo

Access:5 min walk from Asakusa Station. By car or taxi, 30 min from Shinagawa Station, 20 min from Tokyo Station or 50 min from Hanada Airport.



Asakusa is excellent with Kimono, Japanese traditional dress. Kimono looks beautiful at Senso-ji Temple and Edo-machi around it. In the season of New Year Days, Nakamise-dori is decorated with New Year ornaments, and we can enjoy happier atmosphere than usual.


Address:Higashiyama, Kanazawa-shi, Ishikawa

Higashi Chayagai District is the largest one of the three Chayagai Districts in Kanazawa, Ishikawa Prefecture. There're beautiful houses with traditional wooden fences and red walls. And they're very photogenic with Japanese Kimono! You can also enjoy lunch and cafe at Higashi Chayagai.◎I recommend to use rental kimono shop and walk in Higashi Chayagai in Kimono. I rented kimono at 'Kokoyui' this time.


Address:732, Shinkamaza-cho, Shimogyo-ku, Kyoto-shi, Kyoto, Kansai, Japan

Access:5 min walk, from Karasuma Station



[Kyoto / Karasuma] Memories become cute. The Irodori Kyoto Karasuma store has an attractive old-fashioned appearance. There are plenty of retro antique kimonos, obi, bags, and hair accessories. Once you have selected the item, leave it to us. Please finish it in the most cute way.


Address:1-294 Kiyomizu Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto-shi, Kyoto

Access:By bus, 10 min from Kyoto Station to Gojōzaka, then 10 min walk. By car or taxi, 15 min from Kyoto Station.



Kiyomizu-dera is a place I visit every time I go to Kyoto. It was my first time to go during the autumn colors, but I was very impressed by the colorful autumn scenery. There are many cute rental kimono shops, so it is recommended to make a reservation.

Access:20 min by bus from Kyoto Station to Higashiyama Yasui, then 7 min walk. 17 min walk from Keihan Kiyomizugojo Station. By taxi, 15 min from Kyoto Station.

There're tasteful houses standing along the slope, you can enjoy seeing the townscape of Kyoto just the same as you associate. Even Starbucks opens in Kyoto style. Now, this area is designated as Kyoto's important preservation district of historic buildings.

Address:Shimogawara-cho Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto-shi, Kyoto

The road in the west of Kodai-ji Temple is paved with granite. You can find some rental shops of Kimono around here. It'll be nice for you to wear Kimono and ride a rickshaw.


Address:68 Fukakusayabunouchi-cho Fushimi-ku, Kyoto-shi, Kyoto

Access:Just near JR Inari Station, or 5 min walk from Keihan Fushimi Inari Station. By bus, 15 min from Kyoto to Inaritaisha, then 7 min walk. By car, 20 min from Kyoto Minami IC.



The shrine is very popular for its long senbon torii gate. It is a recommended spot because it is not far from Kyoto Station by train. It is good to rent a kimono because it fits very well.


Address:24 Saga Kitabori-cho Ukyo-ku, Kyoto-shi, Kyoto

Access:5 min walk from JR Saga Arashiyama Station. 3 min walk from Araden Rokuouin Station. By bus, 40 min from Kyoto Station to Shimo Saga, then 3 min walk. By car or taxi, 30 min from Kyoto Station.



Rokuou-in Temple's stone paved approach is like an autumn colored red tunnel. We can walk along the approach slowly, and enjoy autumn of Kyoto. Going through the pass, there's a garden where the tranquil time glides by. Please try to look up sometimes.


Address:149 Kawakami Okuyamada Ujitawara-cho, Tsuzuki-gun, Kyoto

Access:By bus, 30 min from JR Uji Station or Kintetsu Shintanabe Station to Ichumae, and change bus to Okuyamada for 15 min, then walk 10 min. By car, 60 min from Kyoto city. Free parking area is available.



Shoju-in Temple has Wind Bell Festival in summer. It takes 40 min from the city, so it's better to access by car. The shining cool sounds of the wind bells make us feel summer.


Address:Gion-machi Higashiyama-ku, Kyoto-shi, Kyoto

Access:8 min walk, from Gionshijo Station

The Gion Festival in Kyoto, which has continued since the Heian period, is a big festival that takes place over a period of one month from July 1st to 31st. It is very spectacular to walk around. The Yamahoko cruise is also registered as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage.


Address:1-3-39 Honmachi, Kanazawa-shi, Ishikawa



At Rental Kimono Shop KOKOYUI, you can choose casual kimono from 150 kinds, and what's more, you can coordinate also Obi, Han-eri (collar), Obi-dome (accessary for Obi) and even Haori (jacket for kimono). I like the decorative tied Obi, so they can dress us very beautifully and carefully.◎The shop is located between Kanazawa Station and Omi-cho Market, and 7min walk from both of them. They prepare all things needed for kimono, so you can visit with empty-handed. You can take a reservation in HP.
