These elegant additions to any kimono will add flair and style without breaking the bank, or requiring a ton of effort to master wearing. We have a numb

Recently we were approached by a young lady to help her out. She had gotten great grades in High School and as such her parent let her purchase what she wanted for Prom: a kimono. Not just any kimono but she wanted to wear a furisode, and did. After her purchase, she went on to learn how to dress herself in kimono and enjoyed a great time at Prom. She even appeared in the local news paper! #promkimono #japanesekimono #kimono #furisode #wafuku #kitsuke #OhioKimono #buykimono

A few months ago we held a poll to let our customers vote on our new bag designs. Spoiler: the purple koi bag won. Our new shopping bags just arrived in the mail, and we could not be happier.

We will have them this weekend at Ohayocon. #japanesekimono #buykimono #kimonostore
