Kimono Experience at Izumi-Fumoto's History Museum

着物着付け体験 (出水麓歴史館)

To fully immerse yourself in the spirit of Izumi-Fumoto, you really should consider dressing the part, and that means donning a kimono carefully fitted by Izumi's finest. The town offers a Kimono Experience program, which you can book before your visit. Although many traditional corners of Japan now offer kimono rental options, Izumi's experience is one of the most authentic. All the kimonos are beautiful, robust, made of silk — as high-quality kimonos should be — and are hand-selected and styled by experienced experts. What's more, is that after the experience, guests can take home their kimono and obi belt as a souvenir.
