Kimono Dressing & Lessons


The kimono (着物) is a traditional garment worn by all Japanese people—men, women and children. The word “kimono”, which literally means a “thing to wear” (ki “wear” and mono “thing”), has come to typify these full-length robes.

At Inspire Space Hiroo we provide the opportunity to dress in traditional Japanese kimono. We can also teach you how to wear the many different styles of kimono. If you take lessons in a group, you can learn how to dress each other—which will give you much better overall knowledge of the intricacies of wearing kimono.
