What you'll do

I will teach you how to dress up in a kimono and decorate your hair with flower ornaments. As a restorer of vintage and modern beautiful kimonos, I'll have several kimonos and sizes for you to choose from. I'll then select a belt and other items to suit your charm. Once you're in your authentic Japanese garment, we'll taste three types of sake while we chat in the traditional tea room. You'll find it to be a relaxing way of drinking, and I will teach you how to drink sake elegantly, whether you are male or female. I will also teach you how to make green tea, but it's not so difficult. We'll feel relaxed and excited in the cozy tea room, and I'll present you with some photos that I've taken during the experience.
Other things to note
Please tell me your height, weight, and any allergies beforehand. Please bring undergarments to wear underneath your kimono. I also recommend that you bring your makeup tools.

Meet your host, Wakana

Host on Airbnb since 2016
  • Identity verified
I’m a photographer and I used to travel around Europe. I had exhibitions every year from 2011 to 2015 to express my journey’s perspectives. I’ve been wearing a kimono since I was 12 years old. I love to teach its history and styling to bring out someone's charm. On the weekends, I teach others about how to dress in a kimono to fit one's body. As I held a standing drink event for five years, I'm also good at chatting with people whom I'm meeting for the first time. Let's enjoy some sake and tea together, and also a cozy time.
