Who Says Buying Kimono Has to be Expensive?
The hobby of Atelier owner, Komatsu-san, spurred her to open her very own kimono shop in antique-laden Nishi-Ogikubo. She has been collecting kimono since she was young. In this time she has become very knowledgeable about kimono and can help you select the right kimono for you.
Firstly, choose the kimono; there are a number of good quality vintage kimono (1930’s to 40’s) as well as more recent kimono patterns to choose from, with prices ranging from 1,000 to 5,000 yen. Next, select an ‘Obi’ (belt) to secure the kimono, if you want to have a unique look, here they sell originally handmade obi with cool patterns like checkers, Alice in Wonderland themed and many more, in limited numbers but also cheap. Lastly, choose cute accessories such as bags, hair clips or bows to complement your kimono looks. A full set look will only cost 5,000 to 10,000 yen, a special low price that you may not be able find elsewhere.
