- You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you. Walt Disney
Would you like to stroll around the streets and neighborhoods of Tokyo in a kimono, and maybe take a lot of photos in the process? Surely a nice kimono will go well with cherry blossoms, or a temple or shrine in the background. You don't have to worry about not having your own kimono or not knowing how to wear one, as there are kimono rental shops that are happy to offer a hassle-free kimono-wearing experience to tourists. In summer, they also rent out yukata, which are made of lighter, thinner material than regular kimonos.
