Kimono Rental
History of Okamoto

The parent shop, "Okamoto Orimono Shop" , has been in business for past 180 years, since 1830, as a principal distributor of Tatsumura artistic textiles.
We have accessories for kimonos, various little items and textiles.

What is Okamoto Orimono (Rental Kimono Okamoto)?


This is a rental specialized shop produced by the parent shop "Okamoto-Orimono Shop". A broad line-up of kimonos which only Okamoto-Orimono Shop with its 180 year-history could offer. Over 1000 kimonos are available. We started kimono-rental supported by our parent shop which has been running its business on the approach to Kiyomizu-dera in Kyoto over the years. As a shop where people can experience the tradition of Kyoto easily, our service is increasingly popular amongst overseas customers, not only Japanese, in recent years.

Greetings from the President

We wanted you to dress up in kimono freely and become more familiarized with kimono. This is why we started kimono-rental. Though kimonos may make you feel a bit nervous, we have everything you need and can dress you in kimono right away as per our slogan "Come along with empty hands". Previously, there was no such concept of renting a kimono, however we wanted our customers to feel more comfortable with kimonos, so this is the form which we finally came up with. We'd like to preserve the Japanese tradition in various forms as nowadays we have fewer occasions to wear kimono. Lovely cityscape of Kyoto and kimonos fit well together.
Please feel more familiar with kimonos and enjoy it on this perfect occasion.

Greetings from the Store Manager

Many people find wearing kimono cumbersome and troublesome, however our shop will totally change such perceptions and give you an easy-to-wear kimono experience. You can realize your dream to dress up in a kimono beautifully. You can easily become a kimono beauty of Kyoto as we coordinate you from dress-up to hair styling in a full set.
