Kurashiki Denim Kimono Rental at Kurashiki Kimono Komachi

Have you heard of a denim kimono? Dress in one before you start posing everywhere at Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarters!

Here at Kurashiki Kimono Komachi (倉敷着物こまち) you will be able to experience this uncommon fusion. With just 5,500 yen (tax excluded), you will be able to enjoy all that Okayama Prefecture has to offer – both the denim and the Japanese culture.


Kojima District located in the southwest of Kurashiki City, is Japan’s denim mecca. The quality of Japanese denim is so superior that many people are prepared to pay more than $300 for a pair!

Kurashiki Kimono Komachi is the first kimono rental shop to offer its customers denim kimonos. If you want to own one, you can buy one!!

Having said that, a normal kimono is also available and cheaper!

Below is the current price list. For the night plan, you will need to take off the kimono yourself at your accommodation (don’t worry, it is quite easy. It is really just untying the knots!) and return the kimono the next day by 12 pm.
