Sakura Hostel Asakusa has just started a new and limited service "Yukata Rental" in summer!


-What is a YUKATA?-
A YUKATA is a casual, single-layered cotton kimono, usually worn in summer.
It's not very expensive and it's easy to wear.
It used to be worn as a kind of bathrobe in the past.
However, people started to wear one when they go to informal events
such as summer festivals and firework displays in the Edo period.
If you spend summer in Japan, you cannot go home without dressing in YUKATA!


-Details-

Fee : 2,000 yen / day / person
*Incl. a yukata, a belt of yukata and dressing by hostel staff.
*Excl. bags / accessories / wooden clogs / hair & makeup.

Available Time : 9:00am - 0:00am

Available Period : From the middle of July to the end of September

Feature of Our Service
1. Good Deal!
    If you use other rental yukata service, it costs JPY 4,000-5,000.

2. We make a postcard with a best photo of you in yukata as a bonus!

3. The deadline for returning is by 0:00.
    Normally it is by 6pm in other rental shops.
    As our reception is open for 24H, you can return it any time before mid-night on the same day.
