Rent a Kimono and Discover “Kawaii” (Cute) Hidden Gems

  • Choose from a wide selection of colors, patterns, and styles to find your favorite kimono.

  • Touring historical buildings in a kimono can be a special memory for you.

  • A local guide will explain the city’s history and culture with stories, humor, and insights.

  • Look for something “Kawaii” (cute) while walking around the city and take a photo of yourself in kimono as a souvenir of your visit.

  • Visit places, buildings, shops, and items that capture the nostalgic charm of Japan’s Showa era (the style and culture of Japan from around the 1950s to the 1980s), a trend among young Japanese people today.

 In this kimono tour of Sapporo, you will meet your local English-speaking guide at a kimono rental shop. The first step is to choose a kimono you like. The professionals will help you dress up in the kimono. Once you are ready in your kimono, you can start the tour. Your guide will take you to photogenic spots where you can take beautiful pictures in your kimono. At the former Nagayama Residence, you can enjoy tea time at the café with kawaii (cute) sweets and drinks. Then, you can have fun at the game center in the Sapporo Factory Mall. There, you can play UFO catchers (crane games) and take kawaii (fun) pictures with a purikura (photo sticker machine). You can also visit some popular spots for locals, such as Hokkaido Jingu Tongu, an auxiliary shrine of the Hokkaido Jingu Shrine, or Tanuki Alley. Tanuki Alley is a retro arcade shopping street where you can take more Kawaii (lovely) photos.
