You’ll transform into a kimono expert during your 45 min class with the only school of its kind in Japan. The class will be held at the shop in the heart of Nara. You will learn how the styles have changed and what they mean, encompassing seasons, hopes and themes. You can use your knowledge to select your perfect kimono from a wide range of choices, with teachers standing by to help with finding your perfect match. The intricate process of dressing will be thoroughly explained in the practice dressing, with each element introduced and worn, so you can perfect the art yourself, before the final dressing. Once you are ready, you can begin your final look, adding finishing touches and accessories with the help of the teachers. You’ll soon be stepping confidently out to pose for photos and enjoy the feel of a complete traditional kimono. A certificate will be awarded after the class and you can rent the kimono to stroll around Nara if you like! You can take your time and appreciate the full process of the art of the kimono, from the history, to the selection, to the end result
