3Kimono dressing

After having signing in at the reception desk, we start dressing you. We have enough space for Kimono dressing at all of our stores. We start from the Hadajyuban: Japanese-style under shirt. The way of our Kimono dressing is not to be too tight and quick. It takes about 30 minutes to complete Kimono dressing per person.

Tip

We suggest you to go to the bathroom before coming to our store as you cannot go there during the Kimono dressing.
