Hello! My name is Atsuko. I am certified by Kyoto City as a professional who shows tourists about historical sites and traditional cultures in Kyoto. Also, I like Kimono and have a license to dress. Recently, there are a lot of tourists who dress Kimono made of chemical fiber. It is casual and easy to dress for beginner. However, Japanese authentic Kimono culture is a quite different from it and based on various rules to dress such as season, TPO etc. This is the reason I start this experience. I lecture you about these tradition in English and dress you in authentic silk Kimono. Ms. Chika Tratani who help this experience, is one of few artists in Kyoto, who can both dress up special Kimonos and set up traditional Japanese hairs, such as currently only seen to Geisha. It is my pleasure to make your travel memorable by this experience.
