Must Go Spots When You Have Kimono On

When you are traveling to a different country, it is interesting to immerse yourself in its own unique culture. Wearing kimono is a popular cultural experience for tourists.

Check our our recent blog on if you are wondering what kind of kimono to rent.

Not sure what to do once you have a kimono on?

Here are KoKoRoGraphy recommended spots for you to enjoy a nice walk in Tokyo with your beautiful kimono!

Asakusa (浅草)

One of the most classic place to visit when wearing a kimono is definitely Asakusa! Nakamise street filled with shops leading up to the famous Kaminari-mon gate makes you feel that you are actually in Japan!

Kagurazaka (神楽坂)

Turn into one of the allies at Kagurazaka and you will feel like you walked into an old part of Tokyo. Its attraction is the stone pavement that creates the retro atmosphere in the area.

Nezu/Yanesen (根津・谷根千)

Yanesen is a combination of 2 location, Yanaka, Nezu, and Sendagaya. It is surrounded by many slopes and there are over 70 shrines and temples in Yanesen. There is something retro about Yanaka which makes it a great combination with kimono!

Nezu shrine (根津神社) is one of the many shrines located in Yanaka. It is famous for its thousand red torii. What a great way to capture yourself in kimono peaking through one of those torii?

Japanese Traditional Garden (日本庭園)

Last but not least, beautiful Japanese garden will be a perfect spot to enjoy a lovely walk in kimono. Walk on a wooden bridge surrounded by beautifully cut pine trees and it won’t get any more Japanese than this!
