A Set of Komon and Obi
Today, we talk about which kimono would be suitable for your
first try if you are thinking “to wear a kimono”.
Let’s see “komon,” which is daily kimono. It’s casual, and good for beginners.
In Japan, most of students start their dressing lesson using komon because
it’s a really basic type of kimono.
Simple and tender colored homong-i for formal occasion.
This is a rental kimono, but reasonable price!
The new year is just around the corner! Renting a kimono set might be good choice for you to try and experience kimono.
Simple is the most beautiful, don’t you think?

Hair Styling and Makeup for Kimono
We recommend this magazine strongly to
develop a discerning eye for formal kimono coordinating!
This is Tsumugi-Homongi for semiformal occasion.
“Tsumugi” is usually stock dyeing(dyed before weaving),
but this type of kimono is piece dyeing(dyed after weaving).
We love this! This is also from the book,
“Nagajuban no Kikonashi（長襦袢の着こなし）” by Sumi Sasajima.
Light beige background accented with blue color,
and it gives an impression of a serene accord with muted brown color.
One of our coordinators really love this, and tried to find the similar one.
However, as you know, it is pretty hard to do that in most cases.
It is said that the encounter a kimono as a once-in-a-lifetime one.
If you find one you really love, don’t miss it!
If you love nagajuban(kimono undergarment), don’t miss it!
This book is written by Sumi Sasajima, who is one of famous kimono dressing coordinator.
You will see very unique nagajuban on this book.
Usually, we don’t find them at kimono stores easily,
and mostly it would be custom-made.
If you want to see more detail of the book,
We have seen lots of ladies out of Japan enjoy kimono fashion, and we are really happy with that!
We also know it’s quite difficult to learn kimono dressing(kitsuke) without any professional instructor. Even us, Japanese, go to class and practice, practice, practice to improve one’s skill!
Now we are working on the new content of professional dressing techniques and tips. We hope this may help you. If you have further question about dressing, feel free to request/ask us. That also may improve the content.
