Bringing kimono back

Momiji Hiroshima Kimono Rental Great Selection

Owner Sato-san’s modern 3F-studio is like an Aladdin’s cave of traditional Japanese fashion. The walls are lined with racks of stunning kimonos in a range of colors and designs. Many of them are vintage garments, donated by their former owners in the hope that the gorgeous fabrics will be worn and appreciated, rather than hidden away in storage.

Inspiration for the studio came from a combination of sadness at how kimono are worn less and less in modern Japan and a desire to introduce them to the many people who visit Hiroshima from around the world.

In fact, Sato-san secretly hopes that the sight of people from outside Japan appreciating and enjoying kimono will encourage locals to take another look at this beautiful part of their heritage. As vintage kimono tend to be on the small side, Sato-san has added a range of larger garments to accommodate a range of body types, and combining western-style elements such as footwear to enhance comfort is applauded rather than frowned upon.
