Wear A Kimono In Tokyo

Always wanted to wear a kimono but don't know how or where to go?

Just make a booking with Japanese culture lecturer Shino Fukuyama who teaches Japanese and foreigners alike how to wear a kimono in her traditional Japanese home in Meguro, Tokyo. In just two or three lessons you will learn how to wear a kimono correctly. The fee is 3,000 yen per person for a private lesson, 2,000 yen per person per lesson for two to six people.

If you do not have a kimono, Shino will rent you one for 1,000 yen. You can also join one of her kimono tours in Asakusa and get information on all the shops. After your first class you will also receive information on where the best (and cheapest) shops are to buy your kimono.

Shino also offers sushi classes in her home. This class includes a morning visit to the fish market where you buy fresh fish for your sushi.

Visit Shino Fukuyama's blog for more information (http://samuraigeisha.blogspot.jp/) or send her a mail at [email protected] to make an appointment.
