Japan has always been a favourite destination for tourists. In addition to the many interesting sites that can be visited, the ingenuity of the country's culture makes it an interesting choice when doing one's holiday wishlist. As for activities not to miss out on, trying out Japan's traditional clothing, kimono, is simply essential. Who wouldn't want to take leisurely strolls and photos while dressed in such a unique and beautiful outfit?
The rise of hijabers attracted to the kimono experience
Aside from typical tourists who are in it for the experience, the rise of Muslim tourists who wear hijabs have also seen the appeal of kimonos. Besides the beauty of its designs, its long and conservative form made it attractive to hijabers, given that its modest fashion combined with a new cultural experience. Still, a remaining issue was that some hijabers felt the need to take off their hijabs just to try out a kimono.
Thankfully, given the high enthusiasm of the hijabers to try out kimonos when in Japan, renting a kimono with a special hijab is now possible when in Kyoto. This is through Yumeyukata, a known kimono rental service with a great rep among tourists who have tried the kimono experience.
