Yamaguchi | Kimono Wearing Experience

Take a walk around the historic city of Yamaguchi wearing a colorful kimono

Saikotei is a former restaurant in Yamaguchi City that offers kimono wearing experience. Here it is possible to change into a colorful kimono and take some memorable pictures inside the elegant 100-tatami banquet room or in the beautiful Japanese-style gardens. If you prefer, you can even wander around town all dressed up and blend in with the traditional atmosphere that still lingers in Yamaguchi City. There is a wide range of colors and patterns to choose from, so you will always find the one that suits your style! At Saikotei, you can also have a cup of matcha and enjoy the retro experience of going for a ride on a traditional rickshaw. Known as Ouchi Culture, the unique culture of Yamaguchi originated with the warlord Ouchi Hiroyo (1325-1380), who left an indelible mark on the city. Many historic buildings representative of that period are scattered throughout this charming town. So how about walking around Yamaguchi City in a kimono and feeling like you have traveled back in time?
