An Authentic Experience of Traditional Japanese Dress and Dance


Let classical beauty flow through you at a venerable kimono shop in Shizuoka


Travelers looking to experience the elegance of Japanese kimono are welcome at Ryoan, a long-established kimono shop in Shizuoka City. The English-speaking shop owner will help you find the perfect kimono, explaining the history of each piece and walking you through the intricate process of putting it on.


Donning your ideal kimono, you'll have the opportunity to learn the two-minute traditional dance Sakura, or cherry blossoms, from an experienced Japanese dance teacher. You will see and physically feel how wearing the kimono beautifully accentuates the movements of the dance.



After the dance, top off the elegant experience in a traditional tatami mat room with a cup of the green tea for which the Shizuoka region is famous.


Access: From Tokyo Station, take the Tokaido Shinkansen to Shizuoka Station (about one hour).Ryoan is less than 10 minutes by taxi from the station.
