Kimonos in Shizuoka
Get dressed in a traditional kimono
Dressing in a kimono is almost ritualistic, requiring skill to achieve an immaculate look. Put yourself in the hands of an expert at Ryoan—a kimono shop in Shizuoka City, established in 1965. The English-speaking owner will help you pick out a kimono, dress you, and explain the history of kimono. When dressed, you will be given a simple Japanese dance class to show off this elegant outfit.
