Looking to shop with us in person? Our next in-person show is Animarathon which is hosted on the campus of Bowling Green State University in Bowling, Green Ohio! This delightful 2 day show is a family-friendly affordable anime convention great for all ages. So grab your favorite kimono outfit and stop by!
Dates: March 25th- March 26th, 2023
Address: Bowen Thompson Student, Union 1001 E Wooster St, Bowling Green, OH 43403
We will have a similar booth as the Animarathon 2022 booth, with a 10 x 20 space that is a blend of stationery, and Japanese kimono. Our kimono selection will include a delightful selection of ready-to-wear authentic kimono directly imported from Japan. Our range of traditional kimono will include yukata, iromuji, and even some more formal styles such as kurotomesode. Aside from a selection of authentic kimono we will have kitsuke kimono dressing accessories such as himo, obi-ita, and makura. Additionally, there will be a selection of lovely haori, and obi in a wide range of colors and styles.
If you are unable to make it to Animarathon to shop with us, we have a few more shows this year in or near Ohio. After Animarathon we will be at the Cherry Blossom Festival in Akron, Ohio and then at the Fort Wayne Indiana Cherry Blossom Festival. All of these events are the perfect excuse to wear a kimono, or haori out to. Feel free to stop by and ask for a hand with your kimono if you have a need, we will be happy to lend a hand if things are not too busy.
As always, customers are dressed with the purchase of their kimono from us. We offer culturally respectful kimono dressings.
Anyone new to wearing kimono and feeling a little overwhelmed by the process, we always recommend opting for a yukata as your first-ever kimono and then exploring other formal types. Yukata are perfect for wearing to conventions and festivals and are among the more simple kinds of kimono to wear.
